In 1999, Senator Harry Reid, who lost his father to suicide, introduced a resolution to the United States Senate which led to the creation of International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. The day was designated by the U.S. Congress as a day on which those affected by suicide can join together for healing and support.

Every year, hundreds of large and small Survivor Day events are held around the world, in which suicide loss survivors come together to find connection, understanding, and hope through their shared experience. The event in Walnut Creek is supported by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the Contra Costa Crisis Center.
