Survivors of Suicide
From grief to growth, from sorrow to strength.
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day: Each year, on the Saturday before Thanksgiving survivors around the world gather together to honor and remember someone they lost to suicide.

September 10th is Suicide Awareness Day
On September 10th, across the world, people will be lighting a candle in or near a window at 8 p.m. Lights will be shining around the world in memory of loved ones lost to suicide. Please light a candle in memory of your loved one.
The purpose of this day is to raise awareness around the globe that suicide can be prevented by:
• Disseminating information: so people can better understand suicide.
• Improving education and training: so people will know the signs of suicide ideation.
• Decreasing stigmatization: so people suffering will feel free to seek the help they need, and so survivors can openly discuss their losses without fear of judgment.
