UAB Psychiatry Supports AFSP in Out of the Darkness Walk
The UAB Department of Psychiatry participated in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Out of the Darkness Walk at Heardmont Park on November 3rd, 2013. The Alabama Chapter of AFSP hosted several walks throughout the state this year with over $160,000 raised and nearly 2,500 people participating. UAB Psychiatry had a great team with over 40 registered participants including faculty, staff, residents, and family members. The Department was ranked 6th out of 101 teams in fundraising efforts and registered participants. We want to thank all of those that participated in the walk and encourage everyone in the Alabama community to join us next year.
