SAVE conducted the first national Memorial for suicide survivors in 1989 at the State Capitol in St. Paul, Minnesota. Today, the Suicide Awareness Memorial is the longest continually running suicide memorial in the United States. Every Spring the Memorial takes place in the Twin Cities for 200-300 people who gather from around the country for support, encouragement, and hope. The Memorial includes stories of hope and survival, a Reading of the Names, Faces of Suicide, Wall of Photos, a Keynote or Panel address, music, food and resources.
