A free webcast of the 2008 National Survivors of Suicide Day program is now available. This was the 10th year that the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has been host to a day of healing, sharing, and grief support for people who have lost a loved one to suicide. Survivors Day is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving each year.

The 90-minute video was simulcast this year to more than 175 cities in the United States (as well as to a handful of international sites) and to an Internet audience, with approximately 10,000 people participating.

[Editors Note: Each site, in addition to showing the national broadcast, featured a local program. Below (click on “Comment” at the bottom of this post) is a link to a story about the program in Rapid City, S.D., where SPNAC publisher Franklin Cook was a speaker (his talk is available here). If you know of media coverage from a local Survivor Day program that has been published on an Internet news site, please provide a link to the local story in a new comment.]
