The devastating effects of suicide and self infliction do not fade away by being ignored.

Each day in Texas, more than six people die from suicide and thirty are hospitalized for attempting it. By taking one step at a time, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will work toward changing these statistics through its Out of the Darkness community walk on Sept. 14th.

During an interview on Good Day Lubbock, Mariah Koch and D'Maris Murillo shed some light on the subject. Click on the attached video to learn more.
