Mental health affects each one of us, in one form or another. A family member. A best friend. A co-worker. A neighbor. It’s a silent pain. The time is now, to be diligent in increasing awareness in honor of those we’ve lost and be proactive for those we love.
The mountains have continued to be a positive way to build inner strength and self-worth. This year, I will be participating in 46 Climbs for Suicide Prevention to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). During August 31st- September 2nd, I will be hiking on 4 different ranges, to support and raise awareness for this incredible cause.
AFSP is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 38,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
Please, if you feel so, consider supporting my campaign in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
