Join Me in Supporting AFSP, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Hi there! I'm Marisa, and I've participated in the Out of the Darkness Walk every year since moving upstate in 2018. I'm just one of the 12.2 million American adults who has suicidal thoughts from time to time. Last year, I was also the guest speaker for Columbia-Greene's walk. 

Please help me reach my goal by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and benefits AFSP: funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide. 

And there's an incentive! If you click the "Incentives" button above and donate $25 or more, I'll send you the first two chapters of my book so you can preview what's sure to be a bestseller someday! (You must click "change" if you want to change the donation amount.) 

The book is a memoir about my experience living with bipolar disorder, discrimination, and mental health recovery, and a major focus is the empathy and kindness we show others. To read more about this and my other writing, visit my website

If you'd like to make a contribution by check, please download the offline donation form here and send by mail. 

Thank you so much for your support!!!

<3 Marisa
