The health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is our top priorities as we work with local authorities to make decisions about event details, and we continue to provide options to participate online and in your neighborhood. With much research and conversations AFSP WA Chapter has decided to move the
Seattle Walk to a Drive Thru Event
Now, more than ever, it’s important to be there for one another and take steps to safeguard our mental health and prevent suicide. Details will be released shortly. Register to receive the locations for the drive thru events on October, 17th. Gather your friends and family to experience the 2021 Out of the Darkness Drive Thru Experience.

Our community has always been the heart of the Out of the Darkness Walks. The global pandemic has impacted the emotional and economic well-being of many individuals and families, and left many of us to manage a variety of emotions, including feelings of uncertainty. We also know increases in suicide are not a foregone conclusion if we act now to mitigate risk and support the mental health of our friends, families, and neighbors. But we need your help. Every dollar you raise through the Out of the Darkness Walks allows AFSP to invest in life-saving research, education, advocacy, and support for those impacted by suicide.

Activities of Hope and Healing From Your Car
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.
