In the interest of creating a safe space for loss survivors, most events are specific to survivors of suicide loss. In addition, many events cannot accommodate children and teens. If you have any questions, please contact the event host directly.
Each year, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention supports hundreds of large and small Survivor Day events around the world, in which suicide loss survivors come together to find connection, understanding and hope through their shared experience. While each event is unique and offers various programming, all feature an AFSP-produced documentary that offers a message of growth, resilience and connection.
We usually get about 75 participants at this wonderful event. We provide breakfast and lunch. We also provide a special remembrance item for each person. Feel free to bring a picture or ornament to put on our remembrance tree. It will be returned to you at the end of the event. We also provide wristbands specific to the kind of loss, i.e., father, sister, etc. This year, we are encouraging people to bring poems, stories, or other ways that you have chosen to honor your loved one. At the end of the event, we will have a balloon release. You will be able to write a message on your balloon if you wish.
