Suicide Memory Wall

Archbold Northside Center for Behavioral and Psychiatric Care

Each year, suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans. Suicide affects all ages, cultures, socio-economic and religious groups. While the majority of suicides fall in this category, other factors like severe stress, chronic medical conditions, grieving from the loss of a loved one and substance abuse are prevalent as well.

In an effort to raise awareness about suicide, Archbold Northside created the Suicide Memory Wall as a way to honor the memory and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have committed suicide. Archbold Northside psychiatrist, Darin J. Drury, MD, painted the featured landscape. The Wall travels to events—health fairs, community gatherings, and schools—to serve as a visual for those who are suicidal to see that there is help and that they are loved.

If you or someone you know needs help, call our 24-hour HELPline at 1-800-238-8661 to speak with a qualified and caring professional. The call is confidential and free.
