Ways to commemorate the anniversary of September 11th in New York City

This year marks the 16th anniversary of the attacks to the World Trade Center. Anniversaries can be difficult; public and publicized events do not always echo our private, more personal remembrances. Some of us may struggle with uncomfortable feelings of grief, sadness, anger, overwhelm; others may completely numb out. It is normal to experience a range of (sometimes conflicting) feelings.

Pay attention to yourself and these feelings.
Know yourself and consider how you would like to mark the day.
Be flexible with yourself and listen to your own cues.
Allow others to support and care for you.

Friends of Firefighters was founded in response to 9/11 and we have since made it our mission to provide long-term mental health and wellness services to the FDNY firefighter community.

Reach out to us at 718-643-0980. We are here for you.

If you are in crisis call On the Line, a 24-hour support hotline.
