Along with Trellis, Forefront is co-sponsoring American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Survivors of Suicide Loss Day film screening on Monday, November 14.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the nation’s largest suicide prevention organization, is hosting International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day events worldwide on and around Saturday, November 19, 2016. Forefront and Trellis will sponsor a Survivors of Suicide Loss Day event on Monday, November 14. Survivors of Suicide Loss Day allows people affected by suicide loss to gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding. These events are free and open to the public. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided.
Our Survivors of Suicide Loss Day gathering will include a screening of “Life Journeys: Reclaiming Life after Loss,” a new AFSP-produced documentary that traces the grief and healing journey that follows a suicide loss over time. We will also provide space for breakout group discussions with pastors and mental health professionals. All those affected by suicide loss are welcome to attend.
