Join us for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s (AFSP) Twitter chat on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. We’ll discuss healing after losing a loved one to suicide and ways to make a difference in preventing suicide in your community.

AFSP raises awareness, funds scientific research, and provides resources and aid to those who are affected by suicide. Throughout the chat, additional partners The Mighty, Sarah Barthel of Phantogram, and TV personality Dustin Pari will share advice for supporting those who are dealing with suicide.

Join the conversation by posting questions or comments followed by the hashtag #Grief2Healing. You can also view the conversation in real time on Twitter.
