COMMUNITY members took to the streets of Armidale to help raise awareness for suicide on Thursday.

Coinciding with World Suicide Prevention Day and RU OK Day, the Out of the Shows Into the Light Walk focused on promoting suicide prevention in the community.

Walk organiser and RichmondPRA Armidale manager Jannelle Brandley said the event was a great success for the city, with more than 130 people joining in.
