American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
Saturday, November 18 is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day that is sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This is an international event around the world. It is a time for when families and friends who have lost loved ones to suicide can come together for a time of healing, hope and support. This year we have 4 locations that are sponsoring this in Maine-Scarborough, Brunswick, Orono and Bangor.
In Scarborough it will be at the Scarborough Library at 2 PM and the guest presenter will be Christine Linnehan, Grief Counselor and Clinician from Riverview Counseling in Scarborough and she is also a consultant for the Center for Grieving Children in Portland.
On November 16, the AFSP will also be having a fundraiser at Portland Pie in Biddeford so bring your families and 10% of your meal that night will go towards helping families that have lost loved ones to suicide and for those that are having suicidal thoughts.
