On Saturday, November 19 Compass Regional Hospice will host Survivor Day at the Hope and Healing Center located at 255 Comet Drive in Centreville from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Survivor Day, an International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, is recognized by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  Compass Regional Hospice invites anyone in the community affected by suicide loss to join us in finding comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope.

This workshop will include discussions and small break-out groups lead by Compass Regional Hospice staff Rhonda Knotts, MCC, Bereavement Coordinator and Wayne Larrimore, M. Ed, Bereavement Counselor, as well as Patricia Kotzen, an affiliate of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
