Permian Basin Walk
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk 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 health conditions have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.

Day-of Experience: Resources & Activities
Stop by the AFSP Store for merchandise, pick-up beads at the Honor Bead tent, and more!
Make sure to arrive early to allow time to explore the resources area. Information tables hosted by local businesses and non-profit organizations will open at 6:00pm. This will be an opportunity to gather literature, hear about upcoming events, and connect with others who are dedicated to raising awareness of mental illness and suicide, strengthening prevention efforts, and providing support to those impacted by suicide loss.
Join us early to decorate, and place a luminaria along the walk path in memory of your loved one. Paper bags, art supplies, and battery powered tea lights will be provided. At the end of the event you can take your luminaria home as a keepsake.
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.
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance and a walk that unites a community - a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and loved ones. We all wear honor beads - each color shows out personal connection to the cause, and helps us identify others who understand our experience
