In 2012, Robyn Greene lost her daughter to suicide.
Alanna was just 29 years old.
Today, the Greene family, will come together with others who face the same questions and grief, to support each other.
It is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.
“It is one day a year, when people who have been affected by suicide loss gather, and it helps them to find comfort and gain understanding. We share stories of healing and hope,” Greene says.
Events are being held in communities around the world today.
“It is important to reach out and to connect with other people with similar loss and to understand the many feelings. There is the stigma, and there is the asking yourself why and feeling guilt, and all of those things. Also asking yourself why you didn’t see the signs. So many people who die by suicide, there are no signs. People who are left behind are left asking why,” Greene says.
