Suicide Prevention Efforts

During Fall Semester, SPARKS Peer Educators spearhead the U bELONg Walk, an opportunity to promote awareness around and prevention of suicide among college students. The goal of the event is to remind Elon students that even when their mental health is at its worst, they are not helpless, and they are not alone. In the spring, SPARKS Peer Educators collaborate throughout the campus community to fundraise for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention through an Out of The Darkness Walk. In the inaugural walk of 2022, the community raise over $22,000 for suicide prevention and education.
