Suicide prevention walk is April 18

Nebraska Union

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s sixth-annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walk for Suicide Prevention will be on April 18 at the Nebraska Union.

Check-in will begin at 10 a.m with opening ceremony starting at 11 a.m. Registration is free and can be completed online.

Out of the Darkness is a suicide prevention group on campus that works with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to host an annual campus walk for suicide prevention.

In Nebraska, suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-34 year-olds. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Out of the Darkness Walk’s goal is to raise awareness about suicide prevention, while raising money to fund educational programs about mental health. This organization is aiming to make our community a safe and educational space to talk about mental health issues.
