CHAPTER EVENTS

AFSP’s growing network of 75 local chapters nationwide bring together those who have lost someone to suicide, individuals with mental health disorders and their families, those with lived experience, mental health professionals, community and business leaders, and others interested in preventing suicide.

They are at the forefront of increasing the public’s awareness that suicide, as a public health issue, is preventable.

Our chapter volunteers organize creative fundraising events for their entire community.
