Talking about and acknowledging suicidal thoughts and feelings are part of an intervention. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in teenagers, and deaths by suicide are on the rise in teens and young adults. Sometimes suicide can seem sudden, but in many cases there are signs and symptoms that someone is considering it. It’s important to know the signs so you or someone you know can get help.

Coming together as a community in support sends a big message of compassion, caring and involvement so be a part of the Walk Out of Darkness happening in Billings this weekend.

The walk is this Sunday at Will James Middle School.

It’s sponsored by the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention helping to raise funds to bring hope, awareness, healing, education and advocacy in the continued fight to #StopSuicide
