REMEMBERANCE WALL

If you are a survivor of suicide loss, we encourage you to bring a non-returnable photo of your loved one to the event to add to our Remembrance Wall. Email a photo to Amanda Grandy (grandy.amanda@gmail.com) if you would like our loved one pictured on this year's memory wall. 

Honor Beads:
Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection. This event is a journey of remembrance and an event that unites a community - a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. We all wear honor beads (available for free at the event) - each color shows our personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance and a walk that unites a community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones. We all wear honor beads - each color shows our personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience

Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you at the walk!
