1 million people die by suicide every year. They leave behind countless family members and friends to make sense of it.

In November, survivors of suicide loss come together at healing conferences in their communities and online for support and guidance.

If you have lost someone to suicide, this conference is for you. You’ll get to hear from other survivors about how they cope. The program also features experts sharing what we now know about suicide and grief.

· If you are recently bereaved, come for support, practical guidance & information.

· If you are further along in your journey of healing, please come to offer a compassionate ear, and to offer reassurance that it is possible to survive the tragedy of suicide loss.

Please plan to join Foundation 2 on November 17th to connect with others who have lost a loved one to suicide and to view a video featuring a panel of “experienced” survivors and mental health professionals talking openly about the questions so many newly bereaved survivor faces.

This year’s conference features local speaker– John Paul Derryberry. John shares his family’s story of tragedy and their path to recovery to shed light on how emotions, difficult moments, and life can change and shake us to our core.
