Across North America, each year, on the Saturday before American Thanksgiving, people recognize International Day for People Impacted by Suicide Loss. This is a day where people impacted by suicide loss, no matter where they live, can come together as communities to find and offer comfort and to remember their loved ones as they share stories of loss, healing and hope.
The national association for suicide prevention in Canada, the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP), has decided to build on the theme of International Day for People Impacted by Suicide Loss Day and further recognize those impacted by suicide loss by declaring November as the Month for People Impacted by Suicide Loss.
The Month for People Impacted by Suicide Loss will allow all individuals who have lost someone to suicide, no matter whether they consider themselves bereaved by suicide, a survivor of suicide loss, or any other term that reflects their loss experience, to become involved with an array of activities and events focused on increasing engagement and building awareness.
