About the Out of the Darkness Community Walks
In partnership with the national sponsor, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, this Walk is locally sponsored by the Hampton Roads Survivors of Suicide Support Group, which has been meeting over 24 years to provide a safe place for healthy grieving. It is hosting this event to spare others from this tragic loss. The number one cause of suicide is untreated depression. By educating people about the symptoms and treatment of the disease of depression, we hope to prevent suicides.
This walk is for anyone who has been touched by depression or suicide. Through the Out of the Darkness Community Walk, we can come together to promote good mental health. The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are 3-5 mile walks taking place in over 200 communities across the country this year, with the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
By walking in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you will be walking with thousands of other walkers nationwide to raise money for AFSP's vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide and provide support for survivors of suicide loss. In deciding to walk you are taking us a step closer to making suicide prevention a national priority.
