Welcome to the 15th Annual Out of the Darkness DFW Metro Walk
Wait.. are we actually walking to fight suicide this year?
Yes! Join us on October 30 at Globe Life Park in Arlington as we walk together, in-person, to stop suicide and celebrate 15 years of Out of the Darkness Walks in Texas. (as permitted by state and local guidelines on event day.) Opportunities for virtual participation will be offered. Details to come.
Why did the name change?
We are excited to announce that we are combining the Dallas and Fort Worth walks to create the DFW Metro Out of the Darkness Walk. We invite you to join us as we form one large catalyst of hope to create a culture that is smart about mental health and suicide prevention.
Register today and let's show our community that we are always #TexasTogetherToFightSuicide

Activities of Hope and Healing
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.
