“Everyone here has a story of heartbreak and hope. Everyone’s stories are different but by sharing those stories we have solidarity in that commonality.”

Tracey Spicer at Winter Solstice 2017

Winter Solstice

On the longest night of the year, Survivors of Suicide & Friends hosts an event to bring together our community in commemoration of those who have died by suicide. With exceptional speakers and heartwarming performances, it’s a night to remember and reflect, and to cherish those we love in our lives.


Held annually in Albury on the 21st of June, the Winter Solstice is a free event for all. In 2020, our event went virtual due to the health orders around the COVID-19 pandemic. The Solstice was able to be shared across borders and timezones, reaching over 20,000 viewers on the night. Survivors of Suicide and Friends plan to host events both virtually and in person in the coming years.

To support the Solstice as a free event, you are welcome to make a donation here.
