About This Event

  • Event Type:Community Health

Knox County will once again host their Annual Suicide Prevention Walk on Saturday, September 17th at Vincennes University’s Outdoor Track. The event’s goal is to raise awareness for mental health, suicide prevention and the importance of seeking support.

Check in for the Walk begins at 8:30 am, Opening Ceremony will start at 9:00 am, and the Walk will follow. Individuals can choose the length of their walk, 1, 2, 3 or 5 miles. Additional activities will include a flag memorial garden, bead jewelry making, and many community resource partners providing information on mental health services.

The Walk allows a time for those affected by suicide to come together and share stories that help them and others heal. We also hope that by joining together we can help combat the stigma of depression and mental illness to make seeking help easier.

Over 57 million people in the United States struggle with mental health issues annually. More than 1,000 Hoosiers lose their life to suicide each year and nationally 12.2 million people have seriously thought about suicide each year.
