TEARS (Together we Educate About the Realities of Suicide)

TEARS (Together we Educate About the Realities of Suicide) was founded on the belief that all survivors of suicide loss deserve support, connection, and hope. We provide support via our monthly survivor support group. We provide connection via our community outreach. And we provide hope by educating our community about mental wellness and reducing stigma around seeking help.

November 21, 2020 is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Every year, in November, survivors of suicide loss gather to remember those we've lost. This is a day to reflect, connect, and seek healing. If you are a friend of a survivor of suicide loss, we encourage you reach out and support those who are survivors. Many survivors of suicide loss virtual events are being held throughout the country.
