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 the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.

Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

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 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.

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
