TEARS (Together we Educate About the Realities of Suicide)

TEARS (Together we Educate About the Realities of Suicide) was founded on the belief that all survivors of suicide loss deserve support, connection, and hope. We provide support via our monthly survivor support group. We provide connection via our community outreach. And we provide hope by educating our community about mental wellness and reducing stigma around seeking help.

Our annual Walk to Remember, Walk to Support fundraiser is on hold for 2020, but join us for our first virtual Sock Salute to End the Stigma!

Our annual fundraiser has gone virtual! Join us Sunday, October 4th, 2020 from 6-7:15 PM for a family-friendly live-streaming event with music, guest appearances, and mental wellness education! When you register online you'll receive an access code to view the live-streaming event on the event date or view when you're able! You'll also receive a custom sock and resource kit. The proceeds from this year's event will be used to focus on expanding two of our programs: our monthly survivor support group and Sources of Strength programming in our community schools.

Please note that we will be hosting a memorial event later this year to remember those we've lost to suicide. Stay tuned to this website and our TEARSGF Facebook page for more information.
