Out of the Darkness Campus Walks 2019

News Story

We invite you to walk with the Pace Community on Friday, April 26 (NYC), or Saturday, May 4 (PLV), to raise awareness about suicide and eliminate stigma surrounding mental health. No one is ever alone. Join us for this important initiative.

Suicide takes the lives of over 44,965 Americans every year, or roughly one death by suicide in the US every 12 minutes, making suicide the tenth leading cause of death in the US for all ages.

You can make a difference just by showing up. Active Minds, a nonprofit working to change the conversation surrounding mental health on the NYC Campus, as well as the Psychology Club on the PLV Campus, invite you to their annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walks to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). AFSP is the leading organization behind suicide prevention through research, advocacy, educational programs, and supporting survivors, and an important initiative to the entire Pace Community.

Please remember that you’re never alone. Even if it might feel that way, we urge you to reach out to the Counseling Center for help. Our team is standing by to guide you through any issue, big or small.

We hope you walk with us:
