Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is a one day event for individuals who have lost someone to suicide (parent, child, spouse/partner, aunt, uncle, cousin, niece, nephew, friend, or extended relationships – wife lost a parent or sibling, parent of someone who lost a partner) to come together and connect in a supportive environment. CMHA Calgary works with a group of devoted volunteers to present a day of support, healing, information, connection and hope for those left behind.
Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Due to the highly emotional and sensitive nature of the day, this event is primarily intended for adults over the age of 16.
