Suicide Survivor Awareness Day

Every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention sponsors National Survivors of Suicide Day - reaching out to thousands of people who have lost a loved one to suicide. This Saturday, November 17th, is the 14th year of raising awareness and providing support.

Over 200 conferences for survivors of suicide will take place throughout the U.S. and across the world. Connecting on this day allows survivors to know that they're not alone in this experience.
