On Saturday, November 17, 2012, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) will be sponsoring its 14th annual National Survivors of Suicide Day. This event, designed to reach out to those who have lost a loved one to suicide, offers participants a chance to connect with other survivors for support and healing.
Conferences will be offered in over 300 cities nationwide, as well as online on AFSP's website. Afterward, there will be an online chat for survivors. Many of the conference sites will also hold panel discussions, workshops and other activities both for survivors and for professionals.
