The American Federation for Suicide Prevention (www.afsp.org) and Survivors of Suicide (sosabq.org) are hosting a day of remembrance on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at Hope Church, 4710 Juan Tabo NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111, from 10 am to 3 pm. THE EVENT IS FREE. Lunch will be served. Join other survivors to honor and remember loved ones and friends who have died by suicide. Bring a photo of your loved one to display on the table.

The New Mexico Suicide Prevention Coalition (www.nmspc.org) is a state-wide group of volunteers who focus their efforts on reducing the occurrence of suicides across our state. The Coalition is comprised of ten workgroups that focus attention on specific at-risk target populations. The Faith Communities workgroup has created a comprehensive resource guide to help in the efforts to combat the high number of suicides within New Mexico.

The goal of the Faith Community group is to distribute these important resource guides to houses of worship.  If you know of a faith community that would be open to meeting with us, we would be happy to travel to any northern community to distribute. Contact Desiree at 505-344-4343 or scrappy1231@comcast.net, or Jodie at 505 270-1940, or jodiehix7@gmail.com.
