Vicki Johnson is a survivor of suicide, having lost her partner Paul in May, 2011. Vicki’s involvement with AFSP began shortly after her loss in an effort to understand depression and the devastating loss of a loved one from suicide.
The Contrack International, Inc. 2014 AFSP Golf Tournament raised over $53,000 and attracted over 150 golfers to help bring awareness and raise funds for suicide prevention. The 2014 Tournament took place on Wednesday, May 21st at Bull Run Golf Course in Haymarket, Virginia.
The National Capital Area Chapter of AFSP has partnered with the local NBC4 news station, along with other mental health advocacy groups, for a year-long campaign the station will be running focusing on mental health awareness.
