Out of the Darkness Walk

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.

Thanks to the Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce annual suicide rate to 20% by 2025.
