11th Annual National Survivors of Suicide Day - November 21st

Excerpts from American Foundation for Suicide Prevention website:

A Day of Healing for Survivors of Suicide Loss Around the U.S. and the World

On Saturday, November 21, 2009, simultaneous conferences for survivors of suicide loss will take place throughout the U.S. and internationally. This unique network of healing conferences helps survivors connect with others who have survived the tragedy of suicide loss, and express and understand the powerful emotions they experience. Each conference site is organized locally, but they’re all connected in spirit as participants across the globe watch a special 90-minute AFSP broadcast together on that day. In the U.S., conference sites will show the broadcast together from 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and international sites will show it from 1-2:30 p.m. local time... Click here to find a conference site near you. (This list is continually being updated as new cities sign up.) For those survivors of suicide loss who don't live near a conference site or who find it difficult to attend in person, the 90-minute broadcast will also be available live on the AFSP website... Click here to register to watch from your own computer... If you have questions please email survivingsuicideloss@afsp.org. If you would like to organize a local conference site, please visit www.afsp.org/survivorconference.

National Survivors of Suicide Day is a day of healing for those who have lost someone to suicide. It was created by U.S. Senate resolution in 1999 through the efforts of Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, who lost his father to suicide. Every year, AFSP sponsors an event to provide an opportunity for the survivor community to come together for support, healing, information and empowerment.
