In the United States, a person dies by suicide nearly every 14 minutes, claiming more than 38,000 lives each year. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college students, and the third for youth ages 15-24, with adolescent depression -undiagnosed, untreated or both- as the number one cause.
The Out of the Darkness Campus Walks are 3-5 mile walks taking place in communities across the country, with the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). By walking in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walks, you will be walking with thousands of students 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.
