DESCRIPTION

Suicide prevention speaker and suicide loss survivor and bereavement speaker, Anne Moss Rogers will be speaking at this conference on finding purpose after long-term loss. How that might evolve over time, how to avoid burnout and find peace from giving back plus additional strategies for taking care of oneself after suicide loss.

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is hosting a conference in Cleveland, OH for long-term survivors. Anne Moss will share her experience and expertise related to suicide loss, bereavement, and the long-term healing process at this conference for long-term loss survivors. This is a specialized event that gives longer-term loss survivors the space to revisit their grief experience and its impact on their lives.

Many longer-term loss survivors find themselves supporting those who are newly-bereaved, but there are few activities that allow them to examine and revisit their own story of loss. For example, longer-term survivors participate in loss support groups, but their function sometimes ends up being more about giving back and supporting those who are newly grieving. In some instances, as well as in their own support networks, they may not have the same opportunity to talk as frequently about how the suicide loss has impacted them over time.

Our goal is to help attendees engage in healthy ways of remembering their loved ones, and honoring the life journey that the experience of suicide loss has had them travel. This is an opportunity for longer-term loss survivors to connect with peers in a safe and healing environment focused on their needs.
