9 reasons to attend an event in honor of International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
Did you realize there’s a whole day dedicated to International Survivors of Suicide Loss? The day is intended for survivors of suicide loss to come together to find connection, understanding and hope through their shared experience, according to this website. “Also known as Survivor Day, the day was designated by Congress as a day on which those affected by suicide can join together for healing and support,” the website says. “It was determined that Survivor Day would always fall on the Saturday before American Thanksgiving, as the holidays are often a difficult time for suicide loss survivors.”In 2019, 417 events took place, including 49 international sites in 26 countries, officials said. If you’ve been affected by suicide, perhaps you’d benefit from attending one of these Survivor Day events.
