Healing from Unexpected Loss
Saturday November 19, 10am to Noon
About International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
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.
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 firsthand the challenges of living in the aftermath of a suicide or unexpected loss.
The local panel will include parents who have lost children to suicide and overdose, grief counselors and a representative of the Miami County Chapter of The Compassionate Friends.
