Greenbrook TMS is proud to have been a sponsor of and participant in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Out of the Darkness Walk on October 20th in Washington, D.C. Out of the Darkness Walks take place all over the United States in order to raise awareness of and support for suicide prevention. This year the sponsors and supporters of the Washington, D.C. Walk, which took place at the Lincoln Memorial, raised over $270,000. In attendance were survivors of suicide, those who had lost loved ones, and anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness as well as mental health organizations. Below are photos of the Greenbrook TMS Team:
Events like these are critical because raising awareness for mental health conditions such as depression encourages those struggling to reach out and get help, and reduces the stigma that keeps people from seeking out treatment.
