Yakima Herald-Republic - 9/9/2022

Sep. 9—Community members are invited to mental health awareness walk on Sept. 17 in Yakima.

Shanna Osman of Yakima has partnered with Yakima Parks and Recreation, Comprehensive Healthcare, Behavioral Health Services and Children's Village to put together a suicide awareness mental health walk.

Osman's son Collin, age 8, died by suicide four years ago, and the event is way to bring awareness to an important topic, she said.

The walk is planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Randall Park, 1399 S. 48th Ave. There isn't a cost to attend.

Event sponsors will have tents up in the park with more information on mental health services. A lava lamp-making station will be available for children.
