On Saturday, November 20, 250 simultaneous conferences for survivors of suicide loss will take place throughout the U.S. and around the world. 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. 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. Many conference sites plan their own local programs for before or after the broadcast, including speakers, workshops, and support groups
Please join us for National Survivors of Suicide Day on Saturday, November 20th from 11:30 to 2:30 PM at Mercy Medical Center.
