It’s worth mentioning that today is National Survivors of Suicide Day:
National Survivors of Suicide Day is a day of healing for those who have lost someone to suicide. It was created by U.S. Senate resolution in 1999 through the efforts of Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, who lost his father to suicide. Every year, AFSP sponsors an event to provide an opportunity for the survivor community to come together for support, healing, information and empowerment.
May those who have suffered this kind of loss find peace and new joy — and may this day help us to learn more about how to prevent suicide. More information about National Survivors of Suicide Day can be found at the American Foundation for the Prevention of Suicide.
