Williamsburg International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day

Hello. We are hosting another Survivor Day at Riverside Doctors Hospital in Williamsburg. Last year Ann Efimetz covered the story. I am wondering if we can get our event covered again. This is day that is celebrate world wide.

A Brief History of Survivor Day

In 1999, Senator Harry Reid, a survivor of his father's 1972 suicide, introduced a new resolution into the US Senate. With its passage, the US Congress designated the Saturday before American Thanksgiving "National Survivors of Suicide Day," a day on which friends and family of those who have died by suicide can join together for healing and support.

Thank you,
