The Reporter: 5K walk in Fairfield to aid suicide prevention

Solano County Office of Education (SCOE) and Solano Community College will co-host the first Out-of-the-Darkness Campus Walk on March 9 at the school’s main Fairfield campus.

A 5K walk, the event will raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s (AFSP) research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, advocate for mental health issues, and assist survivors of suicide loss.

Organizers said that among the event goals are a reduction to the stigma of mental illness in Solano schools and communities through SCOE’s Transition Age Youth Program.
