Survivors of suicide loss

Survivors of suicide loss often endure a profound sense of guilt, confusion or sadness, but it is not a weight they must carry alone. On Saturday, Nov. 18, a community of suicide loss survivors will share stories of inspiration at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. In conjunction with International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, local suicide loss survivors and mental health professionals will take part in presentations and discussion on loss, hope and healing. Lunch, refreshments and a screening of “The Journey: A Story of Healing and Hope” accompany the free event, which is hosted by the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Garfield County, Valley View Hospital, Mountain Family Health Centers, and the SpeakUp ReachOut of Eagle Valley. Register at, or contact Mason Hohstadt at for more information.
