SUICIDE PREVENTION FUNDRAISER
The DC Psychological Association is sponsoring the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Out of Darkness community walk on October 20th at the Lincoln Memorial. Each year, suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. Yet suicide prevention doesn't receive anywhere near the funding as other leading causes of death. Please help us raise money to donate to the cause! Net proceeds from the Out of the Darkness Walks benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. AFSP uses the funds to:
Fund Research for Suicide Prevention
Create and Distribute Education Programs
Advocate for Public Policy
Support Survivors of Suicide Loss
Your donation is deductible as a charitable contribution.
Please donate and come visit our booth at the Resource Fair!
