Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
The Tribes Counseling & Family Services Program will be hosting a Survivors of Suicide Loss Day on November 22, 2019.
This observance began in 1999 when Senator Harry Reid, himself a loss survivor, introduced a resolution to designate the Saturday before Thanksgiving National Survivors of Suicide Day—an occasion for families and friends of people who died by suicide to join together for healing and support. That day was chosen because the holidays are often a difficult time for loss survivors. With the World Health Organization reporting approximately 800,000 people dying by suicide each year, it soon became clear there was a global need for this observance, which is now officially called International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.
Please join us for an evening of healing and support.
