Make Your Steps Count for Kevin’s Cause 7th Annual 5K Run/Walk and Health Fair...
WE WALK TO SAVE LIVES, TO HONOR LOVED ONES AND TO RAISE FUNDS TO HELP PREVENT SUICIDE… Suicide is a national health problem that takes an enormous toll on family, friends, co-workers, and the entire community.
In 2013, 41,149 people across our nation died by suicide; Thousands more attempt each year. 90% of all those who take their life each year have a diagnosable mental health issue. 60% of those suffer with depression, and 50 - 75 receive no treatment or are under treated. Every population is at risk. But the stigma of seeking help for a mental health issue keeps people from finding supportive resources.
The World Health Organization states that Depression is the #1 Disability in the World. And if we don't change how we are supporting, treating, behaving around it, Depression will be come the 2nd leading cause of death by 2020.
