International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
is the one day a year when people who are affected
by suicide loss gather around the world at events
in their local communities for support, resources, information, empowerment and  
                    life coping skills.

This year’s program includes a screening of
The Journey
, AFSP’s new documentary that tells

stories of a diverse group of suicide loss survivors.  Learn how they are weathering the suicide loss of a loved one, and how they are finding their way back to a life rich in meaning—and even joy.
