The University of Michigan Campus Walk is still happening virtually, so you can continue to raise awareness & funds while asking others to join you as a Virtual Walker. 

Any type of involvement will continue to increase awareness, fund scientific research, and provide resources and aid to those impacted by suicide. We can still bring the issue of suicide Out of the Darkness and create a culture that's smart about mental health.

We're so grateful for your support!

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. 

 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.
