PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN MEETING LOCATION…
Survivor Day is the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope. In 2016, there were over 350 Survivor Day events in 18 countries.
This year, we will be recognizing International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day on Tuesday, November 14 in Sudbury. Our event will start with a brief introduction of our Sudbury Bereaved by Suicide Peer Support Group, followed by a short group activity in recognition of Survivor day. This will then be followed by a screening of The Journey: A Story of Healing and Hope, a compelling AFSP-produced documentary about the suicide loss experience, as well the new follow-up featurette, The Journey Revisited, in which six of the original Journey participants gather three years later to reflect on how their grief and healing journey is evolving. After the viewing, we will have a discussion about the film, and about coping and healing after a suicide loss, as well as an opportunity for sharing for anyone interested. We will also have some light refreshments available.
Hope to see you there!
