LGBTQ Out of the Darkness Overnight Walks in June
LGBTQ Out of the Darkness Overnight Walks in June
Although there are no statistics on completed suicides in the LGBTQ community, research does suggest that there is an elevated risk of suicidal behavior and attempts among LGBTQs - not just for teens and young adults struggling with coming out, but across all age groups.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), along with the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center recently addressed the issue of suicide in the LGBT community at a national conference in Chicago this past November. Additionally, AFSP is currently funding two research projects on this issue and is committed to supporting further research exploring suicide prevention and depression in the LGBTQ community.

In June 2008, the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walks will take place in New York City and Seattle. Funds will support AFSP's suicide prevention and education programs, as well as further initiatives to investigate suicide behavior in our community. For more information, call 1-888-The Overnight or visit TheOvernight.Org.
