ROBINSON, Ill. (WTHI) - Stepping out of the darkness for suicide awareness.

Organizers said it's important to bring awareness to issues like mental health.
"I think being from such a small community we've had a lot of loss in our community, so we want to put everything out there that they're not alone and that they can reach out for help," said Carrie Briley.
