International Suicide Survivor Awareness Day

Every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving is International Suicide Survivor Awareness Day. This global effort reaches out to hundreds of thousands of people who've lost a loved one to suicide. This Saturday, November 19, 2011, is their 13th year of raising awareness and providing support.

Over 230 simultaneous conferences for survivors of suicide loss will take place throughout the U.S. and across the world. An amazing network of healing conferences is available for those who have survived the tragedy of suicide loss.

Connecting on this day allows survivors to know that they are not alone in this experience. And perhaps more important than anything else, research has shown that survivors of suicide contribute significantly in better understanding suicide and its prevention. There is great power in the personal narrative.
