Mission Statement

Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide To fully achieve its mission, AFSP engages in the following Five Core Strategies: Fund scientific research Offer educational programs for professionals Educate the public about mood disorders and suicide prevention Promote policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention Provide programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involve them in the work of the Foundation

Description

The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by: delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

As a part of AFSP’s growing nationwide network of chapters, we bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter.
