Out of the Darkness community walks are coming up in Alliance, Scottsbluff, and Sidney with the primary goal to raise awareness of the devastating effects of suicide and to raise funds for local and national suicide prevention and awareness programs.
We invite community members to attend:
• Alliance - Saturday, September 14, walk begins at 8 am, registration from 7:30-8 am at the Performing Arts Center-Commons Area, 1450 Box Butte Avenue.
One in four people live with a mental health condition. This means that someone you know has, or probably has had, thoughts of suicide. We never know what another person is going through. This is a public health issue that does not discriminate by age, gender, ethnicity, or socio economic status.
The Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a number you can call if you have a friend, neighbor, or co-worker who is struggling and you are wondering how to be supportive. It’s also a number to call if you are ever in a crisis. Please enter this number into your cell phone: 1-800-273-8255. You never know whose life you might save. It might even be your own. For more information regarding suicide prevention efforts, contact Janelle Visser with PPHD at 487-3600 ext. 105. Information on suicide warning signs and prevention can be found at www.afsp.org.
