International Survivors of Suicide Day Conference – San Francisco, CA
Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:45 PM (PST)
Have you lost a loved one to suicide? If so, join thousands of other survivors of suicide loss nationwide in a day of healing and empowerment through the 15th annual International Survivors of Suicide Day sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Hundreds of conference sites will simultaneously watch a 90-minute broadcast produced by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. On this broadcast, a diverse panel of survivors and mental health professionals will address the questions that so many survivors face. “Why did this happen? How can I cope? Where can I find support?”
UCSF Depression Center faculty and the San Francisco VA Medical Center's Suicide Prevention Program staff will moderate a discussion group after the broadcast for attendees to share and ask questions.
Admission is free. Registration requested at eventbrite. Drop-ins are welcome. Pre-registering will help us greatly in our planning. View this year's International Survivors of Suicide Day program and panelists here.
