Hotel accommodations are available at a special rate of $125/night plus tax (double occupancy). AFSP will make all reservations - please indicate if you need a room when you register. You will be asked to present your credit card to the hotel at check-in to cover the room charge and incidentals, so please do not send payment to AFSP for your hotel accommodations. To help keep your costs down, we suggest that attendees share rooms; we can help you find a roommate, or you may choose your own. Roommate assignments are given at check-in.

Registration deadline: July 21, 2014. Space is limited, so please register early. Your registration is not finalized until you receive a confirmation email from AFSP, which will contain full details on the training location and agenda. Registrations received after the deadline will be accepted on a space-available basis. 

Fee: $175. Includes a working dinner on Friday evening, lunch on Saturday, and all training materials (manual, DVD, handouts). Transportation and hotel accommodations are not covered by the registration fee. Limited partial scholarships for the registration fee may be available; call 212-363-3500 x2035 for information. 

Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel, please contact us no later than July 21, 2014.  If you cancel after that time, the registration fee may be applied to a future AFSP program or may be converted to a tax-deductible contribution. 

Note: Since this training program is not meant to serve as a healing conference, it’s important for survivors to consider where they are in their own journey of healing prior to attending. In order to create an environment in which participants can best develop and practice the skills necessary to facilitate a group effectively, we ask that survivors wait at least 2 years after the suicide of their loved one before attending.  If you have any questions, or for information about International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day healing conferences, please contact survivingsuicideloss@afsp.org or call 212-363-3500 Ext. 2035.

*Mental health professionals are welcome, though CEU credits are not available.
