Join the Statewide Office of Suicide Prevention and the Florida Suicide Prevention Coalition as advocates, survivors, grassroots organizations, youth and state agencies come together to bring suicide to the forefront as a public issue and over time to save thousands of lives that would otherwise be taken by their own hands.

Meet us in front of the Old Capitol Building at 1:00 PM where walkers will begin to gather and receive free t-shirts. The walk will begin at 1:30 PM and end in Waller Park for the press conference at 2:00 PM. The press conference will feature Governor Crist (invited); Bill Janes, Director of the Office of Drug Control; Jim McDonough, Award Recipient and Former Secretary of the Department of Corrections; Seamus McCarthy, Keynote Speaker for the Suicide Prevention Action Network USA; and Judy Bousquet, Chair of the Florida Suicide Prevention Coalition. Please also visit display booths in the Capitol Plaza Rotunda from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Please see the attached flyer for additional information about parking and a map of the walk route, and also visit our website at www.myspace.com/FloridaSuicidePrevention (launching soon). Please forward this information to anyone you know who may be interested and feel free to post within your organization or community!

Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to seeing you there!
