Memorial in Carmel pays tribute to those who died by suicide

A first-of-its-kind memorial is paying tribute to those who died by suicide in the region.
Lucille and Roy Ettere, whose daughter Nicole died by suicide, spearheaded the Garden of Remembrance, which recognizes lives lost to suicide.
It now rests outside of the Putnam County Office Building in Carmel.

Mental Illness & Their Families

NAMI-NYS will be joining mental health advocates, other mental health and prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members to promote suicide prevention awareness.

Thank you to all who helped make the Putnam Out of the Darkness Walk a huge success. Thank you to AFSP Staff for hosting the event, to all our guest speakers, to all the walkers, to all those who donated, to all the businesses who so generously provided water and snacks for the walkers and food for the staff and beautiful balloons for the entrance, to all the volunteers who tirelessly spread the word, posted flyers and signs and then picked up the signs after the Walk and to all the non-profit organizations who joined us to share their resources. Your support was amazing and we give you all a great big Thank You!#SuicideAwareness #suicideprevention #breakthestigma ... See MoreSee Less
