As part of its suicide prevention efforts, Lenape Valley Foundation is holding a candlelight vigil on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 5:30 p.m. in the courtyard outside the Bucks County Courthouse, 55 E. Court St., Doylestown. The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature speakers and readings by members of the community and the Bucks County Suicide Prevention Taskforce.

The candlelight vigil will memorialize the victims of suicide, offer support for family members and friends touched by suicide and offer hope for the future. Community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. The vigil takes place during National Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 10-16, 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.
