More Info:

If you didn't know, it's "National Suicide Prevention Week", and you might be surprised to learn, that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US.

In 2018, an estimated 48,344 Americans died by suicide.

Because so many of us have been affected by this issue, AFSP - North Dakota Chapter has decided to host a Virtual Experience this Sunday at 2pm CT.

Help spread awareness, and view the opening ceremony at:

In the wake of COVID-19, the ceremony, usually hosted as a community walk, has been moved to an online experience in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The AFSP is encouraging everyone to start an online conversation after the opening ceremony. Make sure you post to our local chapter's Facebook page! Click here for the North Dakota Chapter's Facebook page.

Please help promote the event through your social media outlets! #OutoftheDarkness
