I will be participating in the Didi Hirsch’s 20th annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, September 29 on La Tijera Parkway in Los Angeles. I unfortunately lost someone very close to me this past February. It was very sudden, unexpected and tragic. My goal is to spread awareness in hopes to save other people’s lives, work towards ending the stigma of mental illness and celebrate the special memory of the person I lost to suicide.
I want people to know that It’s OK not to be OK and to get the help when you need it

Suicide doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life, regardless of age, ethnicity or socio-economic status.
According to a new government report, suicide over the past two decades is up 25% across the nation. In 2017, 45,000 people ended their lives and more than 1 million attempted.

Alive & Running started 20 years ago to support Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center, the nation’s first and an international leader in training, research and crisis services. We have innovated many strategies and programs for people in crisis over the years. This Fall, we will open the doors to our Center’s new Century City home, where we will be able to provide more crisis services, training and therapy/support groups – especially for children.

Your donation will support the expansion of our Center and vital services, which include:

• Bereavement groups
• Support groups for survivors of suicide attempts
• Follow-up programs for high-risk callers
• Training for law enforcement, mental health professionals, students
and teachers
• Community outreach
• Suicide Response Team

With your help, we can save more lives! Register or donate today!

Love,
Alexandra Russell
