International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is 11/18/23

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 Thanksgiving as National Survivors of Suicide Day – an awareness day that reaches out to thousands of people who have lost a loved one to suicide.

Sometimes called “Survivor Day,” this November 18th will find children and adults affected by suicide loss gathering around the world at events in their local communities to find connection, comfort, hope and understanding.
