Saturday, November 23rd is International Survivors of Suicide Day.

It's not even in the same month as Suicide Prevention Month (September), and the issues are certainly somewhat different.  The pain felt by people who commit suicide ends in death, but it lingers for the loved ones left behind.  We'll explore the issues that arise for survivors, and the current thinking about how to cope with those issues.
