Remembering Cameron Perkins - Support Suicide Prevention

Organized by: Kelly Perkins

Kelly's Photo

THE STORY:

Cameron Perkins was a 22 year old graduate student, a loving son and brother, and a wonderful friend to many. He was smart, motivated, athletic, and passionate about his beliefs and interests. On January 25, 2015, Cameron took his own life. His family and friends were blindsided by his death, as he had no known history of mental illness and did not exhibit any obvious signs of distress.  In the weeks and months following that horrific day, we've learned that Cameron had been suffering in silence from depression.

Despite the advances our society has made over the last several decades, depression and mental illness are still highly stigmatized. Our objective is to raise awareness surrounding the prevalence of suicide, and to contribute to the prevention of suicide. Each year, over 42,000 Americans die by suicide, which breaks down to approximately 5 suicides per hour. The effects of these losses are shattering. 

All proceeds from the Cameron Perkins Memorial Golf Tournament will benefit The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  We appreciate your support in working towards a world without suicide. 

Thank you so much for your donation.
