International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day takes place on November 17, 2018. Known as Survivor Day, the event, which is sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, 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 2017, there were close to 400 Survivor Day events in more than 20 countries.

Here to talk with us about Survivor Day, and how people can heal from a suicide loss, are Doreen Marshall, who is AFSP’s Vice President of Programs, and Brandon English, Director of AFSP’s Loss and Healing Programs.
