In 1999, Senator Harry Reid, a survivor of his father’s 1972 suicide, introduced a new resolution into the US Senate. With its passage, the US Congress designated the Saturday before Thanksgiving as National Survivors of Suicide Day - an awareness day that reaches out to thousands of people who have lost a loved one to suicide.
National Survivors of Suicide Day has evolved into a global awareness day called International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day thanks to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention. Sometimes called “Survivor Day,” this November 19th will find children and adults affected by suicide loss gathering around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and heal.
Every 40 seconds, someone dies by suicide. 
Every 41 seconds someone tries to understand that loss. 
If you need help, are suicidal or feeling hopeless, please call 1-800-273-TALK.
