The Overnight Virtual Experience
The safety and health of our community is our top priority. Therefore, with your well-being in mind, we have decided to host The Overnight Virtual Experience this June to continue to honor loved ones we've lost to suicide and to support those who are struggling. We will stay connected during this time and lift each other up, just as we would have done in person.
The Overnight Virtual Experience will be composed of four main pieces, much like last year's first Virtual Overnight Experience:
Why We Participate
The Overnight Virtual Experience is an event like no other.
As you virtually participate, you'll feel safe and cared-for in a community where everyone supports each other. It's a place to laugh, to cry, and to heal - to honor the past and embrace a future that your work will change for the better.
Suicide prevention does not get anywhere near the funding given to other leading causes of death. It's up to supporters like us to make a difference. Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life.
We invite you to browse Our Brave Space and COVID-19 resources we put together for you. You can also read our Frequently Asked Questions and AFSP's response to COVID-19.
