Com­pass Re­gional Hospice to host Sur­vivor Day at the Cen­tre­ville Hope & Heal­ing Cen­ter

Sunday Star - - BUSINESS -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — On Satur­day, Nov. 18, Com­pass Re­gional Hospice will host Sur­vivor Day at the Hope and Heal­ing Cen­ter at 255 Comet Drive in Cen­tre­ville from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In­ter­na­tional Sur­vivors of Sui­cide Loss Day is the one day a year when peo­ple af fected by sui­cide loss gather in their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to find com­fort and gain un­der­stand­ing as they share sto­ries of heal­ing and hope. Sur vivors Day is spon­sored by the Amer­i­can Foun­da­tion for Sui­cide Preven­tion.

This year’s gath­er­ing will in­clude a screen­ing of The Jour­ney: A Story of Heal­ing and Hope, a com­pelling AFSP-pro­duced doc­u­men­tary that traces the grief and heal­ing jour­ney that fol­lows a sui­cide loss through loss sur­vivors. Fol­lowed by pre­sen­ta­tions led by Com­pass Re­gional Hospice grief coun­selors Rhonda Knotts, MCC, and Wayne Lar­ri­more, M.Ed, small group dis­cus­sions and a can­dle­light re­mem­brance cer­e­mony. A light lunch will be pro­vided.

Com­pass Re­gional Hospice in­vites peo­ple in the com­mu­nity af­fected by sui­cide loss to join. For many loss sur­vivors, at­tend­ing a Sur­vivor Day event is an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover that they are not alone in their ex­pe­ri­ence of los­ing some­one they know and love to sui­cide. There is no cost.
