Happening This Weekend: “Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention” Walk

This Saturday April 19th, at the Southeast campus of Tarrant county college students and supporters will gather around for a great cause. The Area Gay Straight Alliance has put together a campus wide event to honor loved ones and promoter further discussion and research on suicide prevention. According to The  Out of The Darkness official website “In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 13.7 minutes, claiming more than 38,000 lives each year. It is estimated that an attempt is made every minute, with close to one million people attempting suicide annually. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. among adults 18-65, the second leading cause of death among teens and young adults, and individuals ages 65 and older account for 16 percent of all suicide deaths. This is a public health issue that does not discriminate by age, gender, ethnicity, or socio-economic status. Walk to save lives, find an event near you and register today
