Why I'm Walking: Depression is among the most treatable of psychiatric illnesses. Between 80 percent and 90 percent of people with depression respond positively to treatment, and almost all patients gain some relief from their symptoms. But first, depression has to be recognized. And most people suffering from it, won't speak up. I'm here asking you or someone you know dealing with it, to speak up, if not to me, to someone, anyone. There is help out there, Suicide is not the answer. I promise you.
Where The Money Goes: Every Benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.
What I Want: We can't all afford to donate, I understand that... shoot, that's me most weeks. But, what I would ask, is that you do a good deed today, reach out to someone you haven't had a deep talk with in a while, and just be nice - be welcoming.
