November is National Suicide Loss Survivor Month

Losing someone to suicide is a unique kind of loss.  It's hard to talk about and, unless you have lost someone this way, it can be difficult to imagine the confusion and the pain that inevitably follow.

November 19th is Suicide Loss Survivor Day.

Each year, The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) offers a documentary for survivors of suicide loss.  This year's film was "Family Journeys: Reclaiming Life After Loss".  View the trailer.

You can view previous year's documentaries by clicking here.

Check back for updates on AFSP's National Suicide Loss Survivor Day event for 2017.
