Join us Sunday, September 24th for our 5th Annual 'BE A FRIEND' 5K Walkathon to support Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center's work to help New Yorkers who are in distress and suicidal.
NYC's only community-based organization devoted to preventing suicide, Samaritans operates NYC's 24-hour suicide hotline, support groups that provide solace to those touched by suicide, and education programs that teach health providers how to help those who are depressed and in crisis.
Though most of us know someone who struggles with problems related to mental health, trauma or a significant loss, very few people make charitable donations to prevent suicide.
Please support my efforts--and those of Samaritans over 100 caring volunteers and friends--to help Samaritans meet the increasing need in NYC for suicide prevention and crisis response services. It is a wonderful organization literally doing life-saving work. Every donation is 100% tax-deductible.
