The American foundation for Suicide Prevention is hosting an Out of the Darkness walk in San Luis Obispo on Saturday morning.  Check-in begins at the Plaza at 8:45 am, with the walk from 10:00-noon. 

Consider participating to honor CENG student Daniel Maerowitz and those we have lost to suicide as well as all of those who have friends or family members who died by suicide.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, support, and a walk that unites a campus and community – a time to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental illness have affected our lives and our loved ones.

When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.

AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
