The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) produced the documentary 'The Journey', for Survivor Day 2014. Please note:The film is appropriate for most middle and high school–aged children to watch with a guardian. It is not intended for children under 12, or for children or adolescents who are currently struggling or suicidal. Guardians, please use your best judgment when deciding whether to let those in your care view the film. For more information, visit the International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day website.
“I hope we can all join together to better understand the mystery of suicide and offer support to those left behind.” – Kim Ruocco, TAPS Spouse
In the aftermath of a death by suicide, there may be confusion and questions circling in your mind. What if? Why? What could I have done? These are questions often asked by people who experience the death of a loved one, but they take on expanded meaning to people facing grief when their loved ones have died by suicide. You are not alone. TAPS is here to walk alongside you and offer comfort and help. Suicide survivors are welcome at all TAPS events for families of our fallen. There is a special suicide loss chat each month and we hold an annual gathering for suicide survivors in the fall.

TAPS Suicide Survivor Seminar By Rebecca Morrison, surviving spouse of Army Captain Ian Morrison
Thursday morning I bounced out of bed early and yelled “Oh my gosh!” I never get up on time and certainly never bounce. But this morning I knew that I would be headed to California for the TAPS seminar. I went to work and taught my lessons, but couldn’t hide my excitement over my pending trip. So at noon Texas time I darn near bolted out of the elementary school and ran home to grab my suitcase.
