International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, also known as Survivor Day, is observed on the Saturday before Thanksgiving each year. This day serves as a time for individuals who have experienced a death to suicide to come together for support and healing and to share their experiences with others who have endured similar losses. It’s a day of remembrance, understanding and hope, where survivors can find solace in knowing they are not alone in their grief. The Mourning Hope Grief Center exists to companion children, adults and families before and after a death loss. By offering support groups, education, resources and referrals at no cost to participants, Mourning Hope’s programs ensure a compassionate response for all bereaved Nebraskans.
