International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day 2020
Nov 21, 2020
For many years, the FamilyMeans Center for Grief & Loss has been a host site for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. This event recognizes those we have lost to suicide, and the individuals they have left behind.
This year, International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is November 21, 2020. This AFSP sponsored event provides an opportunity for the survivor community to come together for support, healing, information, and empowerment. Since its creation in 1999, Survivors of Suicide Loss Day has immensely grown. In 2019, 417 Suicide Survivors events took place in 26 countries around the world. We are happy to support this event, and join together with thousands across the globe as we remember loved ones on this day, and everyday.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 regulations, the Center for Grief & Loss is unable to host our usual in-person event this year. However, we recognize that this year, perhaps more than before, may feel especially isolating to those who have lost a loved one due to suicide. Therefore, we would like to share information with you on how to participate and find support virtually.
