On Sunday, October 1 at Exposition Park in Downtown Los Angeles, we will gather together to walk 2,160 steps in remembrance of the approximately 2,160 lives lost each day worldwide to suicide, pay tribute to survivors, and shine a light on this important issue. Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services is thrilled to host this inspiring event which builds community, promotes awareness, and raises funds for our suicide prevention services.
For 80 years, Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services has been providing compassionate mental health, substance use, and suicide prevention services to individuals and families, especially in communities where discrimination and injustice limit access. Alive Together serves as a powerful platform to bring together those who have experienced the profound impact of suicide and advocates dedicated to promoting mental wellness.
Here are just a few of the ways that you can join us:
Form a Team: Encourage your employees to come together as a team, promoting team building, wellness, and camaraderie while collectively supporting a cause that is close to their hearts.
Sponsor the Event and Host a Booth: By becoming a sponsor, you will have the chance to showcase your commitment to mental health. A dedicated booth at the event will provide an opportunity to engage with over 700 survivors of suicide attempts or loss, mental health advocates, as well as our dedicated staff and volunteers.
Donate an In-Kind Item: Your generous contribution of an in-kind item will help us make Alive Together more successful by incentivizing our walkers and team captains to spread the word about Didi Hirsch and secure more donations while promoting your services.
Volunteer: Our volunteers play an invaluable role in ensuring the event runs smoothly and creating a warm, supportive environment.
In addition to the remembrance walk, the event will feature:
An inspiring panel of survivors sharing their stories of hope
Resources for those struggling with mental health and addiction problems
Highlights on the impact of Didi Hirsch’s unique suicide prevention work
Food, refreshments, and games for the whole family
A safe space to connect with others
