Students from the Buckeye Campaign Against Suicide and Peers REACHing Out participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walk each October. The Foundation is a leader in the fight against suicide and the walk is a way to engage young adults to help make a difference.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 18-24. The campus walk series brings thousands of students across college campuses nationwide together to bring mental health conditions out of the darkness and stop the unneeded loss of life.
