Staff from the California Correctional Institution (CCI) walked a mile uphill to bring awareness to suicide prevention. It’s part of an Suicide Prevention Awareness Walk at the institution.
Staff walked from the front gate to Facility A to help bring awareness to suicide prevention, and to remember victims of suicide and the family and friends left behind.
Representatives from Save A Life Today (SALT), a Kern County Non-Profit Organization that raise funds for suicide prevention and to assist those bereaved by suicide, also laced up their walking shoes to participate in the event.
SALT promotes awareness at health fairs throughout the county, sponsors awareness training and distributes awareness literature at various events. These efforts are made possible through donations.
