Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, but there is something we can do about it. Each year, thousands of people participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Community Walks, raising awareness and letting people know they are not alone.
Join us for our Pittsburgh Out of the Darkness Community Walk on Saturday, September 12th at Stage AE, as we walk to fight suicide. Funds raised support research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.
Suicide prevention starts with everyday heroes like you. Come be a part of the movement that’s helping create a culture that’s smart about mental health.

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a bold goal to reduce the national annual suicide rate 20% by the year 2025!
