Take a look at this flyer sent to us by Shannon Malloy, a research coordinator in psychiatry at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the White River Junction VA Medical Center.
“This year our team is hosting our 4th annual American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Out of the Darkness Campus Walk at Dartmouth College on May 19,” Malloy said.
“If you are unfamiliar with AFSP, it is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide,” Malloy said. “The Out of the Darkness Walks are AFSP’s largest fundraiser; which produces millions for suicide prevention programs, unites those who have been affected by suicide, and creates communities that are smart about mental illness. These walks are held in hundreds of cities across the country to give people the courage to open up about their own struggle or loss, and the platform to change our culture’s approach to mental health.”
