International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Survivor Day is 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. In 2016, there were over 350 Survivor Day events in 18 countries.

All gatherings include a screening of an AFSP-produced Survivor Day documentary about the suicide loss experience. Watch our previous films here.
