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.

The SPCO asks media to please respect the privacy of attendees by not being present at our event, unless attending as a survivor for support. Media may contact Rhonda Lesley, Chair of the Suicide Prevention Coalition, for media requests in advance of the event. Thank you.
We invite survivors, as well as their friends/family or support system members, to join us at The Venues for this dedicated time of healing and support provided by the Suicide Prevention Coalition of the Ozarks (SPCO). We will be viewing the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s film, The Journey Revisited (view film trailer- https://vimeo.com/231742835) and several survivors will share stories of their unique healing journeys and offer hope and suggestions for coping. Please visit our site again soon for more details on speakers and other resources for healing available on November 23.
