THANK YOU to everyone in our campus and wider communities, who participated in walking and supporting our walk this year! It was a fantastic event and we exceeded our financial and participation goals. See pictures from the day HERE and plan to join us for our Fall 2014 walk!
The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are 3-5 mile walks which take place in over 200 communities across the country, with the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
By walking in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you will be walking with thousands of other walkers nationwide to raise money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide and provide support for survivors of suicide loss. In deciding to walk you are taking us a step closer to making suicide prevention a national priority.
The University of Maine Counseling Center coordinates the Out of the Darkness Community Walk each fall. This year’s walk took place on Saturday, September 29, 2013. For more information on how you can support the 2014 walk, call 207-581-1392 or check out our Facebook page: Out of the Darkness UMaine.
