LEONARDTOWN, MD – Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is an international event for people affected by suicide loss to provide comfort and gain understanding through shared stories of healing and hope.  This year, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is partnering with the Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership to host a free Survivor Day event at the St. Mary’s County Health Department on Saturday, November 18, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

For many survivors of suicide loss, attending a Survivor Day event offers a chance for recovery, to reclaim hope, and forge bonds that can last a lifetime.  It doesn’t matter how long ago the loss, all adults ages 18 years and older are welcome to attend.

The St. Mary’s County Survivor Day event, hosted by AFSP Out of the Darkness (Southern Maryland), the St. Mary’s County Health Department, and the Healthy St. Mary’s Partnership, will provide large group conversation as well as breakout sessions to participants in the company of empathetic individuals who share a similar experience. Snacks will be provided.
