ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, October 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Healthy Families of Albuquerque, LLC, the leader in therapy and counseling in Albuquerque, NM, participated in the Out of the Darkness walk. The movement began in 2004. This powerful event gives communities a platform to provide people the courage to open-up about their own connections to the cause, and a platform to create a culture that is smarter about mental health.
This event involved friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers walking next to each other supporting each other through shared grief and it is done each year in the memory of those that have been lost.
