American Foundation for Suicide Prevention “Out of the Darkness” Overnight Walk"
Have you heard? Suicide rates have increased 60% over the last 45 years. Our advocacy at A New Dawn Podcast is to eradicate discrimination of those that live with mental illness. Teaming up with American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we are doing something incredible. We're participating in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk - an extraordinary event where participants from all over the country join together to walk 16-18 miles over the course of one night.
We're fundraising to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Net proceeds will help those affected by suicide and mental health conditions by supporting research, advocacy, survivor resources, education, and awareness programs. AFSP has set a bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by the year 2025, and I'm proud to be part of that mission.
Thank you for your support in a cause I believe in. Together we can save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. (Link)

We are sharing the many faces of mental illness, videos and audio clips from those that live with it on a daily basis.
We envision this becoming an educational resource for educators across the globe.
