International Day for People Impacted by Suicide Loss

Every third Saturday of November is set aside to acknowledge those who have been impacted by suicide loss. Each tragic death affects families, friends, neighbours, co-workers and whole communities. 

International Day for People Impacted by Suicide Loss is about creating opportunities for dialogue. Talking about suicide in a compassionate and knowledgeable way will help to destigmatize and break down the myths that surround it.  The Council believes that it is essential to give a voice to the stories and experiences of the survivors of suicide loss. Along with the profound sorrow, there are messages of hope and resilience.
