THE STORY:

My son, Riley, and I are running in the NYC Marathon and fundraising for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of his sister, and our daughter, Sheridan Halloran.  Sheridan, at 22, died by suicide on May 12, 2016, leaving behind a devastated family and community.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), in addition to bringing hope to those affected by suicide, is dedicated to saving lives through educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention.  One such initiative is directed to college students and other young adults, focusing on educating them to seek help for depression and other mental illnesses (just as one would for physical health), promoting the importance and acceptability of seeking help for a friend or for oneself, and providing information for how to seek professional help for oneself or assist a peer in getting help.  There are more than 1,000 suicides of college-age students every year; suicide is the third-leading cause of death among people aged 15 to 24.

Sheridan ended her life five days after graduating from college with honors.
