International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Date: November 17, 2018 – Time: 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. – Place: Ashe County Library

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope.

Survivor Day was created by an act of Congress in 1999 and since then has been sponsored and supported by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). In 2017 there were over 380 locally organized events held throughout the U.S. and around the world.

For many loss survivors, attending a Survivor Day event is an opportunity to discover that they are not alone in their experience of losing someone they know and love to suicide. In addition, all gatherings will include a screening of an AFSP-produced documentary for and about suicide loss survivors. For those who are unable to attend a Survivor Day event in person, AFSP hosts a Survivor Day program online at

A local Survivor Day event will be held in West Jefferson on Saturday, November 17 at the Ashe County Library at 10:30.
