WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - The Suicide Prevention Walk at Wrightsville Beach Park helped family and friends remember those they have lost to suicide.   

Event organizers shared common misconceptions about the complicated death of suicide. They said every thirteen minutes someone dies by ending their own life.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention told walkers there are options to get help.

They recommend checking out groups like the National Alliance for Mental Illness, the Coastal Horizons Center and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, if you want to learn more information about mental health and suicide prevention.
