BUFFALO - The annual International Survivors of Suicide Day Program, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, will take place from 12:45 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17 in the Buffalo Psychiatric Center’s Butler Rehabilitation Center Auditorium on the center’s main campus, 400 Forest Ave., Buffalo.

This program will bring together people who have lost family members of friends to suicide for healing, support, information and empowerment.

“Each year, 36,000 people in the United States die by suicide. Today, these people include veterans, college age young people whose personal lives have been broadcast over the internet and most recently, adolescents affected by bullying,” said Dr. Celia Spacone, the psychiatric center’s director of operations and program coordinator. “With every suicide, there are family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers, ‘survivors,’ left behind to cope with the tragic loss. This event is an opportunity for survivors to share their grief, reach out for support and support others.”

The program will include a broadcast from the AFSP featuring people from all over who have lost close relatives and friends to suicide. A local panel discussion will follow the broadcast. Doors will open at noon. A light lunch will be served. There is no fee but registration is requested. To register or for more information, call 816-2011.
