Activities of Hope and Healing
Our Walk event will include a memory wall activity, a hope wall activity, as well as honor beads. We will incorporate specific activities to commemorate 9-11 as we honor all first responders and share how grief units and brings hope through shared experiences.
Losing someone to suicide or struggling with a mental illness can feel like no one understands what you are going through. Unlike other illnesses, it is difficult to look at someone and know their connection. There is an honor bead for everyone, whether you have lost a loved one, struggle personally, support a friend and/or family member, or all of the above. Learn more by watching our honor bead video.
The Out of the Darkness Experience is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.
