These dark, cold months of the year can really be hard on people's emotions. 

Which probably explains why International Suicide Survivors Day is coming up soon (November 22nd). 

Winterspring, based in the Rogue Valley, is versed in helping people deal with grief and loss from a variety of circumstances. 

Executive Director Julie Lockhart and Shoshana Alexander explain the mechanisms, and the preparations for Suicide Survivors Day.   

FOLLOW-UP: Find the events of Suicide Survivors Day at this web page.

And here's a national suicide hotline for all communities: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
