Long-Term Survivors of Suicide Loss Summit
July 21 - 24, 2022
The Long-Term Survivors of Suicide Loss Summit, taking place July 21 - 24, 2022 in
Cleveland, Ohio, provides those who have lost a loved one to suicide several years in the
past or more a unique opportunity to share their experiences, and benefit from constructive
new insights on how to healthily continue their grief journey over time. Those whose loss is
less recent (typically five or more years ago) are encouraged to attend, as the summit will
offer a different perspective than for those whose grief is more recent.
Through workshops, expert-led discussions, and social activities,
participants will engage with topics including:
• the different stages of grief • how to break the silence within families • using art, writing, and physical activity to process feelings over time • the intersection of trauma and long-term suicide loss • the positive aspects of volunteering • suicide and military culture • the relation of spirituality to suicide loss • sharing about suicide loss in the digital age • facilitating support groups for the newly bereaved • turning pain into purpose • the need for self-compassion • coping with long-term grief and depression • and more
The Long-Term Survivors of Suicide Loss Summit is the only conference of its kind, and one that promises to offer participants invaluable strategies to reflect, grow, and continue to heal.

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
Saturday, November 21, 2020
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is a special time when survivors of suicide loss can come
together to find compassion, connection, and hope through their shared experience. The day was created
in 1999 when Senator Harry Reid, who lost his father to suicide, introduced a resolution to the
United States Senate. Also known as Survivor Day, it was designated by the US Congress as a day on
which those affected by suicide loss intentionally join together for a time support and healing.
Survivor Day always lands on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, as the fall and winter holidays are
often a challenging and emotion time for suicide loss survivors. The American Foundation for
Suicide Prevention supports hundreds Survivor Day events all over the world.
