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 usually have a remembrance item to give to each person as well as a remembrance tree. This year, we are encouraging people to bring poems, stories, etc. about their loved ones and how they have given back to prevent suicide in honor of their loved ones.
