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.
There is an honor bead for everyone, whether you have lost a loved one, struggle personally, support a friend and/or family member, or all of the above.
We're excited to have the 2019 Walk at Cypress Grove Community Park again. Our route will be a scenic walk together starting and ending at Cypress Grove Park. The route is paved and mostly level and accessible to all ability levels.
Parking, transit, and route information will be posted as we approach walk day.

The Out of the Darkness Community 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.
