Oakville is Recognizing International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day


This year, on Nov. 17, Oakville is recognizing International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.

The town will recognize this day by hosting its own Survivor Day.

Survivor Day is a day where people who have been impacted by suicide loss can gather to find comfort, gain understanding, and share stories of healing and hope. 

This event, hosted by Heartache2Hope, will provide healing to support adults who have experience a suicide loss. 

"In the interest of creating a safe space for loss survivors, some events are exclusively for survivors of suicide loss," the event website notes. 

"In addition, many events cannot accommodate children and teens. If you have any questions, please contact the event host directly."

There are Survivor Day events all around the world, but the Oakville event will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 17 and will be held at Shaarei-Beth El Congregation of Halton, 186 Morrison Rd., Oakville.

Dinner will be provided at the event.

There is an attendance fee of $15.
