Montana’s suicide rates are among the highest in the U.S. Most Montanans have been touched by someone who has been at risk of or has died by suicide. As concerned citizens, each person can do something to help prevent suicide.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is sponsoring its 14th Annual Yellowstone Valley Out of the Darkness Community Walk on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017. Activities and check-in for all participants, those pre-registered and those who register on-site, begin at 12:45 p.m. at Veterans Park, Poly Drive & 13th Street West in Billings. Each of us can join efforts with others in Yellowstone Valley to raise funds for research and education, to promote awareness about suicide risks, to reduce the stigma of suicide and mental health treatment and to aid those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Funds raised at this event support programs for research, prevention and education in Montana.

Please participate in and/or contribute to the Yellowstone Valley Out of the Darkness Community Walk. Free registration and more information is available at online at afsp.org/yellowstonevalley. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Walk Chair Joan Nye at joannye@iwks.net or 406-321-0591.
