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.
It will be in Spanish and English. A Spanish Speaking Leader, a Therapist who speaks Spanish and a Survivor of 2 or more years after the loss of the person who took their life. The same set-up will be in English in a different room. The food, activites, and the therapist will use the third room if later privacy is needed. Both populations will mingle early on in the room to get breakfast and participate in the activities. There will be films in each conference rooms, one with head titles.
My Pet Therapy Dog, Izzy, who I work with at the hospital, will be on site for emotional support.
