Rock Island, IL (WQAD) — A park bench has been donated to an Illinois park by Josh’s Benches for Awareness, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of mental health issues and promoting resources for suicide prevention.
The yellow bench was installed in upper Longview Park and includes a National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number and message.
