Chatham Township recently held an “Out of the Darkness” Walk as part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s lifesaving work. Many local residents joined Mayor Curt Ritter at the event, as did Morris County Freeholders Doug Cabana, Heather Darling and Tom Mastrangelo, plus County Clerk Ann Grossi.
This community walk, one of hundreds held across the state and nation, are aimed to encourage people with mental health issues to open up about their own struggles or losses, and to change our culture’s approach to dealing with issues of mental health.
