October is National Suicide Prevention Awareness month, and in honor of it SCI Smithfield staff formed a team for the annual Out of the Darkness walk. The walk was held on Oct. 7 at Juniata College in Huntingdon. 

SCI Smithfield staff joined the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and fund the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy and support survivors of Suicide loss.

Team SCI-Smithfield members raised more than $900 dollars for suicide prevention.  The team consisted of:  N. Thomas, H. Bishop, A. Lingle, K. Laird, S. Moist, S. Morris, T. Force, J. Rivello, P. Magill, P Edgin, A. and A. Lidwell and EDS Shirley Moore-Smeal, along with numerous family and friends. The team would like to thank each and every individual that supported us and donated to our Out of the Darkness walk.
