Triangle Survivors of Suicide Walk
NAMI Wake and NAMI North Carolina showed support on Sunday, November 11th, for the Triangle Survivors of Suicide Walk. Hundreds of friends and family members showed up to honor their loved ones and raise awareness of suicide.
It was befitting that this event was held on Veteran’s Day, as the suicide rate for Veterans is 1.5 times higher than non-Veteran’s after adjusting for age and gender (VA Suicide Prevention Report, 2016).
If you or a loved one is grieving the loss of a death by suicide, the Triangle Survivors of Suicide has support groups and resources that may help during this time. Find out more through the links below.
