Golden Gate Bridge | Battery Cranston Rd, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
While Valentine’s Day generally conjures up images of happy couples and romantic proposals. For some, the expectation of being in love or partnered intensifies suicidal thoughts for those who find themselves depressed and alone.
The Bridgewatch Angels will dedicate Valentine’s Day to saving lives on the Golden Gate Bridge. They are eeking compassionate volunteers to greet everyone with smiles while bringing hope to those feeling depressed and suicidal.
The primary focus will be to engage individuals on the bridge who are walking alone, displaying negative body posture, or lingering mid-span.
The Golden Gate Bridge remains the number one suicide destination in the world. There were 31 suicides from the Golden Gate Bridge in 2018 and 187 interventions by the Bridge District Police, CHP and the Bridgewatch Angels volunteers.
Valentine’s Day Bridgewatch will be from 2pm to 6pm. Register on Eventbrite and please include your email so we can communicate with you regarding logistical information (location, times, parking, rideshare options, and what to bring with you). We will also send you critical training information to help you prepare.
