As part of its suicide prevention efforts, Lenape Valley Foundation is holding a candlelight vigil on Thursday, Sept. 9, at 5:30 p.m., in the courtyard outside the Bucks County Courthouse, located at 55 E. Court Street in Doylestown. The event is free and open to community members.

The candlelight vigil for suicide prevention will memorialize the victims of suicide, offer support for family members and friends touched by suicide and offer hope for the future.

The vigil takes place during National Suicide Prevention Week, which is Sept. 5-11 and is an annual campaign in the United States geared toward informing and engaging the general public about suicide prevention and the warning signs associated with suicide. The campaign aims to reduce the stigma surrounding the topic of suicide and encourages the pursuit of mental health assistance, while also offering support and resources to those who have attempted suicide.
