Mission Statement

AFSP is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health by engaging in the following core strategies: Funding scientific research Educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention Advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention Supporting survivors of suicide loss and those affected by suicide


Las Cruces Out of the Darkness Walk began in 2018. We are looking for volunteers to help with planning the walk throughout the year. We would like volunteers to help with hanging up flyers, contacting potential sponsors, contacting potential walkers, and various other tasks. The walk will be 9/10/2022 at Young Park.

Suicide is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States. In 2019, national suicide rates declined in the U.S. for the first time in two decades and rates continued to decline in 2020. With your support, we’ll be one step closer to achieving our bold goal to reduce the national suicide rate 20% by 2025.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention leads the fight to stop suicide. Funds raised from the Out of the Darkness Walks allow AFSP to invest in research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
