Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Out of the Darkness Campus Walk Suicide Awareness & Prevention Walk 

The Out of the Darkness Campus Walk is an annual walk that takes place during the spring semester on UNI's campus, beginning at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. This event hosts valuable mental health resources on UNI's campus and Cedar Valley community. This walk is nationwide and allows the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. As a leader in the fight against suicide, AFSP has set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20 percent by 2025. For more information, please contact Alicia Christians at
