For many loss survivors, attending a Survivor Day event is the first time they realize they are not alone, say organizers. “Just hearing the stories—from people at all stages of healing—can be helpful,” AFSP states. “The gathering also provides participants with a chance to share their own stories with those who understand firsthand the challenges of living in the aftermath of a suicide loss.”

In 1999, Senator Harry Reid, a survivor of his father’s 1972 suicide, introduced a new resolution into the US Senate. With its passage, the US Congress designated the Saturday before American Thanksgiving “National Survivors of Suicide Day,” a day on which friends and family of those who have died by suicide can join together for healing and support.
