What is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day?
International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is an event in which survivors of suicide loss come together to build relationships, awareness, and hope through their mutual experiences.
Letrice Duckworth-Blue will share her story about why mental health is very important and the impact that it had on her life. At the tender age of 15, her life changed drastically when her mother died by suicide. There are no words that can truly describe the pain, the feelings of loss, and the hopelessness that she endured during this time and many years to follow. Miraculously, she was preserved and today she is still standing strong. Finally, she now has the liberty to tell her story to help others by allowing them to witness that there is hope through God and anything is possible.
