Suicide prevention starts with everyday heroes like you. You’ll raise money for critical research and prevention programs, and show your community that you support a culture that’s smart about mental health.
From a student in our RN to BSN program:
Walk to Save Lives
Suicide claimed 41,149 lives in 2013 in the United States alone, with someone dying by suicide every 12.8 minutes. A suicide attempt is made every minute of every day, resulting in nearly one million attempts made annually. When you walk in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walks, you join efforts with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives. The walks raise awareness about depression and suicide, and provide comfort and assistance to those who have lost someone to suicide.
My team is called Team H.O.P.E.- Hold on, pain ends. It is a team that was created to bring support and awareness to suicide prevention for anyone that may be affected by mental health.
I will also attach the event flyer of the official walk information and a North Dakota AFSP fact sheet.
