NEVADA COALITION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION TO HOST 15TH “ANNUAL WALK IN MEMORY – WALK FOR HOPE” SEPT. 11
On Saturday, Sept. 11, the Nevada Coalition for Suicide Prevention will host its 15th annual “Walk in Memory – Walk for Hope” community suicide prevention event. The event takes place at multiple locations throughout the state, including Clark County (Henderson), Nye County (Pahrump), Carson City and Humboldt County (Winnemucca).
Hope Means Nevada (HMN), the community-based non-profit focused on eliminating youth suicide in the state, is among many organizations organizing a team to walk at the Henderson, Nevada event, and members of the public are invited to join existing teams, create their own team or walk on their own.
The Nevada Coalition for Suicide Prevention (NCSP) is a statewide coalition dedicated to suicide prevention efforts and made possible through our members in the mental and physical health professions, business community, survivors, advocates and other supporters. connects people and communities to help and hope and believes suicide prevention is everybody’s business. NCSP’s vision is to ensure all Nevadans feel hopeful and are connected to the resources they need. In so doing, the coalition hopes all communities will be free from suicide by eliminating the taboo/stigma related to suicide and encourage open discussion; promote multiple contacts for help within the community and beyond; raise awareness that suicide is preventable and affects everyone; involve and engage all Nevadans before there is a crisis, thus building trust and networks of support; remind Nevadans that all have a role to play in the prevention of suicide.
