WALK-A-THON for "fight suicide"
A person dies by suicide every 11 seconds in the Unites States. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among ten to thirty‐four year olds. Suicide rates are exponentially rising across Virginia. According to the research of American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, one person dies by suicide every 7 hours in Virginia. However, most Americans remain unaware that suicide is a national health crisis. The impact suicide has on the lives of family members, friends, co‐workers and the community is devastating. The loss of human potential is enormous.
We hope you will walk with us, The Family Counseling Center of Greater Washington, as we walk the beautiful path to raise awareness of the devastation of suicide and its prevention.
