The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is proud to announce the 4th Annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walk at Arizona State University is scheduled for March 21st at the Tempe campus.
In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 13.7 minutes, claiming more than 40,000 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. Suicide is a national health problem that takes an enormous toll on family, friends, co-workers, and the entire community. In deciding to walk you are taking us a step closer to making suicide prevention a campus, community, and national priority.
When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walks, you join the effort with thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.First Annual Wonders of Science Expo at New Vistas Literacy Spree: Supporting Educational Empowerment MIM Music Theater Brings Exceptional Indian Artists to the Valley Kalakaar 2015: Click for a Cause Researchers test device to help deaf children detect sounds NASCAR effort focuses on math, science for kids India needs a bigger role in the UN The Original Yogi Tea
