WHAT TO EXPECT

  1. This is an environment where people understand suicide loss. It will be a day of healing where those in attendance recognize and honor your loss. Though we understand the grief of children is important, this event is not appropriate for children under 12.
  2. Every event will be slightly different though the main activity is the viewing of the DVD program, which all sites will do. However, some events are much more intimate and others are large. Some just play the DVD program and some run all day, with speakers, activities, and breakout sessions. It is important to get in touch with your event's organizer to get the schedule for the day.
    1. 1 or 2 events are being held on a different day due to special considerations. We will make special note of this on any event where this occurs.
  3. Some locations will charge a small registration fee or ask for a suggested donation to help them in supporting their local survivor community.
