Opening Comments from Congresswoman Debbie Dingell

SAFE Now, in conjunction with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is hosting an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk on Sept. 29. Registration starts at 3pm!

The Out of the Darkness Campus Walk is a 50/50 fundraiser. 50% of the proceeds come to EMU to support our effort to end the stigma and fear surrounding issues of mental health and suicide. You can sign up to participate as an individual, or in a team - like your student organization!

Our goal with this event is to talk about suicide prevention and reducing the stigma about mental illness - we welcome everyone to come, regardless of ability to donate!
