Our community has been dealing with tragic events surrounding mental health/self harm/addiction among our youth. The goal of this walk is to raise awareness and understanding of these challenges that our families face. Our aim is to “Recognize,” “Intervene,” Support,” and “Enlighten” our community to provide resources to as many people as possible who are struggling to be able to obtain the services they need. This is a growing concern that must not be ignored; the rise in youth suicides in our coastal community has impacted people of all ages. Together we will RISE to #endthestigma surrounding mental health. All monies raised through this event will be granted to area not for profits servicing those in need.
