Sutton took to Instagram on Thursday to share of throwback photo of her late father, who stood next to a wreath hung on a door.
Alongside the photo, the RHOBH star wrote: “Today is the anniversary of my father’s suicide. It’s been 18 years.
“Today I am giving to @namicommunicate National Alliance on Mental Illness.
“The holidays see a rise in suicide. NAMI has helplines and text for crisis at 741741. Suicide and mental illness shouldn’t be hidden but solved. And NAMI works to make that happen.”
Sutton continued: “As a victim of suicide, there are also support groups to families and friends.
“This is my Christmas present to those hurting from mental illness and those affected by someone they love with a mental illness.”
She then asked her Instagram followers to consider donating to the cause, writing: “I urge you to check it out. Website is in my bio.
“To steal @lisarinna ‘s slogan, I’m gonna talk about it.”
The Bravo star concluded: “Love you daddy.”
REMEMBERING HER DAD
Sutton opened up about her father’s suicide during a previous episode of RHOBH.
Sutton got teary eyed as she revealed: “My dad committed suicide and my mom is a psychotherapist so it’s a tricky little situation there.
“My dad was mentally ill.”
The 50-year-old continued: “He was depressed and it’s so silly because he died 18-years-ago but not a day goes by that I’m not thinking about him.”
Sutton is among the stars to be featured on the upcoming season 12 on RHOBH.
It was recently announced that Will Smith’s ex-wife Sheree Zampino will now be joining the regulars including Sutton, Erika Jayne, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, Crystal Kung Minkoff and Kathy Hilton.
A premiere date has not been confirmed for the upcoming season, though RHOBH viewers should expect to see more about Erika’s legal issues.
The 82-year-old was later sued by his business partners, which resulted in a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition in December.
Despite claiming she was not aware of Tom’s wrongdoings, the Bravo star has found herself at the center of the legal drama.
Amid the chaos, the 50-year-old recently admitted she will “never marry” again following her divorce from Tom.
