Sharing Kindness is a nonprofit that provides suicide prevention, mental health education and grief support programs on the Cape & Islands.

400+ people gathered for the Cape & Islands Suicide Awareness Walk at Veterans Park Beach, Hyannis, in May, raising over $64k for our nonprofit.

Share your person’s story.

Each person who dies by suicide leaves behind an estimated six or more suicide loss survivors — people who’ve lost someone they care about deeply and are left grieving and struggling to understand. We invite you to share the story of your loved one on our virtual Memory Wall, and learn a little about the stories of others. Visit the Memory Wall >>
