Suicide Awareness Community Walk

Cass Health’s Senior Life Solutions team is hosting a free community walk in support of Suicide Awareness Month on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 beginning at 6:30 pm at the Rotary Shelter at the Schildberg Recreation Area. The event is being co-hosted by Healthy Cass County and Cass County Iowa State University Extension.

The event will kick-off at 6:30 pm with a local speaker, Noelle Whitney and Crystal Sullivan, who will share their story on how suicide has touched their lives.  The walk portion of the evening will begin around 7 pm. Participants will walk the trail loop at the Schildberg Recreation Area. Information about mental health services as well as light refreshments will be available at the Rotary Shelter.

We would be honored to share stories from our local community about how suicide has impacted their life.  All stories shared will be posted for participants to read at the event and identities will be kept anonymous.  Please submit your story below.
