IntlSurvivorsofSuicideLossDay11.22.14Thousands of survivors of suicide loss will gather together around the world Saturday for mutual support and practical guidance on coping with grief.

While no one chose to walk this journey of being a survivor of suicide loss, we can find comfort and hope by being with others who understand.

Every 40 seconds someone in the world dies by suicide.

Every 41 seconds someone is left to make sense of it.

If you have lost someone to suicide and you live in greater Boston or southeastern Massachusetts, please join us for a supportive program Nov. 22 at Hope Floats Healing & Wellness Center in Kingston, Ma., from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

The programs is sponsored by Hope Floats, Cranberry Hospice and Palliative Care, and the Plymouth County Suicide Prevention Coalition, at 4 Elm Street, Kingston.
