ACTIVITIES OF HOPE AND HEALING

    

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.

The Out of the Darkness Campus Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, support, and a walk that unites a campus and 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

  • WHITE - LOST A CHILD 
  • RED -  LOST A SPOUSE OR PARTNER 
  • GOLD - LOST A PARENT 
  • ORANGE - LOST A SIBLING 
  • PURPLE - LOST A RELATIVE OR FRIEND 
  • SILVER -  LOST FIRST RESPONDER / MILITARY
  • GREEN - STRUGGLED PERSONALLY
  • BLUE - SUPPORT THE CAUSE
  • TEAL - FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF SOMEONE WHO STRUGGLES


Online registration closes at noon the Friday before the walk. However, anyone who would like to participate can register in person at the walk from the time check-in begins until the walk starts. Walk donations are accepted until June 30th.

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of 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.

As the leader in the fight against suicide, and thanks to walkers like you from cities across the country, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
