LUH Event - Together We Can Inspire Hope


LIGHT UP HOPE OC September 19-24, 2022

The OC Healthcare Agency will be “lighting up hope” to recognize suicide prevention month in September by lighting several iconic locations throughout the County in teal and purple. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among children 10-14 and young adults 25-34. But suicide is preventable and shining a light on this difficult topic and sparking meaningful conversations helps to save lives by raising awareness.
