FISP understands that it is so hard to be alone in your grief. That is why we offer you a FREE day of sharing and learning to help you through that process. FISP's 17th Annual International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day of Healing is an opportunity to be with fellow Survivors of Suicide Loss friends, family members and grief professionals who can help you learn ways to navigate through your grief process. You are not alone! FISP is here to help you with five support groups and this supportive Day of Healing.


Join us for a Continental Breakfast, Box Lunch, a Mini Survivor Workshop and presentations by local suicide loss survivors and mental health professionals.  We will share the screening of the AFSP video called The Journey and small group discussions that bring together people who have experienced a similar loss. Parking is next to the building and free.


I am looking to forward sharing this day of learning, laughter, tears, and true fellowship with you. Together on this day, in a room filled those who understand your grief we will all help each other heal.
