ALBANY-- Volunteers in the Capital District are joining the thousands of people walking in towns across the country to fight for suicide prevention by hosting a local "Out of the Darkness" walk Saturday.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United State and touches one in five American families, according to Robert Cardom, a licensed psychologist at the University at Albany's Counseling and Psychological Services.
All funds raised from the walk will support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's education and support programs and its goals to reduce the annual U.S. rate of suicide by 20% by the year 2025.
