RISE Above The Dark Mental Health Awareness WalkName: RISE Above The Dark Mental Health Awareness WalkDate: September 14, 2019 - September 15, 2019Event Description:Sponsored by Tidelands Health in partnership with Coastal Montessori Charter School and the Georgetown County School District.
One of the goals of the overnight walk is to raise awareness and understanding of mental health issues affecting the community.
Another goal is to educate and encourage the community to RISE – Recognize, Intervene, Support and Enlighten – to provide resources, care and comfort to those in need.
The idea for the walk originated after a number of suicide attempts and suicides by teens and young adults in the community.Participants will walk through the night and then rise with the sunrise – symbolic of their desire to help those living with mental health challenges rise above the “dark” they can sometimes feel.
In addition to raising awareness, the event aims to raise money for area not-for-profit mental health service providers to help offer needed resources.
