Join us on May 1st 2022 for the Hold On You Matter Walk to Make a Difference, an inspiring community event to raise awareness of suicide and supporting prevention.
The 8th annual Hold on You Matter Walk to Make a Difference brings hope to Bucks County residents and works to educate residents on depression and mental health, reduce the related stigmatizations, encourage seeking assistance and improve access to services.
The Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force was created and endorsed by the County Commissioners in 2013 to support those who have lost loved ones to suicide, increase the number of people seeking help (instead of suicide), reduce the stigma of depression and other mental health issues, as well as the stigma for getting help for those issues and to decrease the rate of suicide in Bucks County. Over the past decade the Task Force has been steered by an enthusiastic association of volunteers, advocates and professions from varied backgrounds and diverse experiences who are all committed to decreasing suicide rates and stigma through education and public awareness.
Join your family, friends and neighbors in fundraising, and walking, to raise awareness and support the work that saves lives! Walk to Make a Difference brings together local school districts, mental health providers, vendors and local representatives to support suicide prevention efforts and break the stigma. The May 1st walk will take place in Fairless Hills; registration begins at 9 and the walk begins at 10. Join a team, create your own, or even just donate to help fund this year's campaign.
