At The Overnight Walk, honor beads are worn to represent loved ones lost to suicide or personal struggles with mental illness. Each color represents a different connection to the cause. In this video you will hear touching stories from some of last year's walkers as read by AFSP supporter and celebrity chef Melissa d'Arabian who lost her mother to suicide 25 years ago.
