Bringing mental illness ‘Out of the Darkness’

Join us as we support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Chicagoland Walk, Saturday, September 21, 2019, at Montrose Harbor. The UICDR will be walking as a team in addition to being a sponsor of the walk. We are joining the community of nearly 250,000 people walking in hundreds of cities across the country in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. The walk is one part of Project 2025, an AFSP initiative to reduce the suicide rate in the U.S. 20% by 2025.

Please walk with our team to represent all the amazing work the UICDR and the UIC Department of Psychiatry does towards the goal of suicide prevention in youth and adults. If you cannot join in person for the walk, become a virtual walker!

Details on how to register to join the UICDR team can be found here, and please send the word out to friends and family members to donate to our team. See here for more information about the walk.

We hope you can join the UICDR in our fight against suicide. For additional information contact Sally Weinstein at sweins3atuic [dot] edu.
