A Worthy Cause

So, those of you who have read the few posts I have written know that my passion is mental health and the effect a healthy lifestyle can have on this.

In honor of this, I have signed up for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness walk. Every year suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. According to AFSP close to one million people will make a suicide attempt and more than 40,000 will die by suicide in the U.S. this year. These statistics are troubling, but it is important to know that suicide can be prevented.

If you or anyone you know would like to donate to this cause, please do so by clicking the link below. My goal is $1,000 and every little bit helps.
