Suicide Survivors’ Club Story Portrait Workshops in Minneapolis

The Suicide Survivors’ Club founders developed a workshop inspired by their Suicide Survivors’ Club book series. The workshop will help attendees: 1) Get validation for the ups and downs of how life changes after the suicide of a family member. 2) Understand how visual storytelling can help families after their loss. 3) Use images provided by the facilitator to tell your loss story and aid in your healing process.

Attendees will also receive a copy of the book set to use as a healing tool on your own, with a therapist or in a support group. This workshop, for ages 18 and older, will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Thrivent Financial Conference Room, 701 Xenia Avenue South in Minneapolis, and on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 10:00-Noon, at PrairieCare Institute, 1934 Hennepin Ave. in Minneapolis.
