Walk with us in the 5th Annual Suicide Prevention Walk June 7!
The Living Works Community Walk for Suicide Prevention will feature Keith O'Neil, former NFL football player, as our 5th Annual Community Walk guest speaker. Our Walk begins at 10:00 a.m. (9:00 a.m. registration) at Darius Miller Park, North Main Street, Princeton, and will conclude at Zearing Park where, during our closing ceremonies, Keith will share his story about dealing with mental health issues while playing football.

The funds we raised will allow us to offer local suicide “first aid” intervention training (see sidebar at right), and grief support to those who’ve lost loved ones to suicide. Long-range goals include attracting mental health care professionals to treat at-risk individuals locally, and educating and engaging the community in addressing reasons that drive people to consider suicide.
We've provided ASIST® intervention trainings, and in 2012 brought Jordan Burnham to IVCC to share the stirring account of how he survived his own attempted suicide, and how he went on to recovery and to assisting others. Your participation in the Walk allows us to continue these efforts. Together, we can all make a difference!
