The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Portage County is holding an event for survivors of suicide loss on Saturday, November 18 from 1-3pm. The event will include a screening of the new documentary, “The Journey: A Story of Healing and Hope.” The film traces the grief and healing journey that follows a suicide loss through the eyes of a diverse group of loss survivors. The film shows how those left behind navigate the aftermath of their loved one’s suicide to find meaning and even joy, and takes an intimate look at how their healing journey evolves over time. A group discussion led by Joel Mowrey, PhD, executive director of the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Portage County and local resident Deirdre Svab will follow the screening.
The Survivor Day event will be held at the Coleman Professional Services Sue Hetrick Building located at 3922 Lovers Lane in Ravenna. Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is preferred. Contact Laura at 330.673.1756 x201 or for more information or to pre-register.
