Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, but there is something we can do about it. Each year, thousands of people participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness CommunityWalks, raising awareness and letting people know they are not alone.
Join us on Saturday, November 16th at Treaty Oak Park as we walk to fight suicide.
Funds raised support research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide. Remember: Suicide prevention starts with everyday heroes like you.
Come be a part of the movement that’s helping create a culture that’s smart about mental health.
Register today at AFSP. Together, we can stop suicide.
