Suicide Prevention and Awareness


Dear Friends,

I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide this fall to walk in AFSP's San Diego WalkOut of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

With my work at a high school counselor, I have worked with students who have a hard time dealing with the pressures and stresses of their daily lives. Unfortunately, some have contemplated suicide. Yet, with the help of caring friends and family, they have been able to heal.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 38,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.

I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause. If you would like to participate, please join my team "SUHi Lives" in honor of all the Sweetwater High School students who persevere every day! I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event as well. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click the "Make a Donator" button below.

Thank you for your support!
