The OPA Public Education Committee (OPA PEC) participated in the Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk on October 5 in Portland!

Out of the Darkness Walks join efforts of hundreds of thousands of people nationwide to raise awareness and funds, which 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 participants like the OPA PEC, the AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
