Let's walk a mile for suicide prevention
It has come to our attention, by members of our Sangha, that the Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC) is sponsoring the Ripple Effect: Walk for Suicide Prevention to raise funds and increase awareness of mental health conditions in the AAPI community. Mental health is an often stigmatized topic in society today and is one of the leading causes of suicide across all age groups.
In support of this event, Gardena ABA has setup a GBC Team to enable everyone to walk a mile for suicide prevention. Through our support, we hope to raise awareness of mental health in our community and to provide an opportunity to reflect on those around us who may need help.
