Virtual Overnight Experience - Open Teams

One of the most unique and powerful aspects of the Virtual Overnight Experience is the sense of community present when participants from all across the country unite with the common goal of breaking the silence surrounding suicide and mental health. Joining a team can enhance your Overnight experience by introducing you to new people so that you can begin forming bonds before the Virtual Event. We have several teams every year that are open to welcoming solo participants. If you have any questions, please contact Francesca at [email protected]
