The Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program is helping organize an American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Out of the Darkness campus walk on Saturday, April 7, to raise awareness of and money for suicide prevention. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, and the third for youth ages 15-24. Adolescent depression—undiagnosed, untreated, or both—is the No.1 cause of suicide.
Faculty, staff, students, families, and friends are invited to participate by walking and/or raising funds. By walking in the Johns Hopkins University Campus Walk, you will be walking with thousands of students to raise money for AFSP's important research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives.
The 3+ mile walk to Patterson Park and back will start at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 7, at the School of Nursing. To register and/or make a donation, visit the Johns Hopkins University Campus Walk page of the Out of the Darkness Walks website before April 7.
