We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day can change your life. It’s the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope.


Survivor Day 2015 takes place on Saturday, Nov. 21. All gatherings will include a screening of the new Survivor Day documentary produced by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and titled “Family Journeys: Healing and Hope After a Suicide.”


Additional programming is specific to each event. The programming may include presentations by loss survivors and mental health professionals as well as small group discussions that bring together people who have experienced similar losses.


For many loss survivors, attending a Survivor Day event is the first time they realize they are not alone. Just hearing the stories — from people at all stages of healing — can be helpful. The gathering also provides participants with a chance to share their own stories with those who understand first-hand the challenges of living in the aftermath of a suicide loss.


Please join us at the local event on Nov. 21 at the Mountain View Hospital Plaza, 1000 E. 100 North, Payson, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. To register, visit suvivorday.org.
