An Evening of Hope & A Celebration of Life
Suicide is an epidemic that takes over 800,000 lives globally every year. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts and over 40,000 deaths by suicide every year. Our United States Military is devastatingly impacted with 22 Veterans dying everyday by suicide, and that is an understatement.

Research has shown that for every one suicide death, over 115 people are directly, and secondarily effected and the financial cost of suicide in the US is estimated to be over 40 billion dollars annually. Suicide is global public health crisis that is not receiving the attention it deserves and therefore millions continue to die and the ripple effects of these deaths continue to devastate parents, children, families, friends and communities.

This event, organized by WeCareNAZ and Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy student Tammy Truman will shine light on the reality of this ongoing crisis and highlight effective efforts that are helping people stay well and alive. We hope you'll join us uniting and igniting change that will have a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world.

Tammy's story: "On September 21st, 2017 my brother committed suicide leaving behind his six-month-old son. Since this tragic event I have noticed that this has been a recurring issue in society and happens more often then it should. I have noticed a striking amount of teenagers and adults who feel like ending their life would benefit them. My goal for the event is helping the Flagstaff community cope with the ever-growing rate of anxiety, depression, suicide, and mental illness in general. My goal is to reach out to as many people as possible."
