On Survivors’ Day, people affected by suicide gather to find comfort and gain understanding as they heal from the effects of suicide for them and their loved ones.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help from those close to you when you need it. So much hurt and pain goes
unheeded during grief because we don’t want to bother anyone else with our problems. Wouldn’t you
want someone close to you to ask for help if they needed it? Some relatives and friends will not be
able to handle your grief. Find someone with whom to talk. Seek out an understanding friend, survivor, or support group member.
