Each year, the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Portage County hosts the Suicide Loss Day event on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is the one day a year when people who are affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their own communities for support, information, and empowerment.
The event features a screening of an AFSP-produced documentary that traces the grief and healing journey that follows a suicide loss through the eyes of a diverse group of loss survivors. The film shows how those left behind navigate the aftermath of their loved one's suicide to find meaning and even joy, and takes an intimate look at how their healing journey evolves over time.
