Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Last year, a participant at the annual Central Iowa Survivors of Suicide Loss event wrote this afterwards:  It was excellent.  It was nice to know there are others who have lived through/thought/done the same things I have.Suicide Prevention

This free event on November 21st is designed for people who have lost someone to suicide, whether a friend, co-worker, neighbor, spouse, parent or child.  One of the most powerful parts of the day is a panel of persons who have all survived the loss, and will tell stories of what has helped them heal.
