October 19, 2015

Mayfield’s Suicide Prevention Task Force recently sponsored an Out of the Darkness Walk-Around-School event, designed to promote awareness and prevention of depression and suicide.

Free-will donations to Team HOPE Mayfield that totaled $250 were accepted from staff and students.

Team HOPE Mayfield, comprised of MCSD students, staff, alumni and community members participates in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Capital Region Walk for R.I.T.A.

Donor-participants in the Walk-Around-School were given Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses, suicide awareness stickers and wristbands to wear throughout the day as they walked to and from classes.

AFSP provides valuable guidance and support to Mayfield’s Suicide Prevention Task Force and to other local suicide awareness and prevention efforts.
