Save lives and bring hope.

Heroes for Healing are a dedicated and passionate group of donors who have the resources to significantly impact the work of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the community it serves through a personal committment of $5,000 or more. These committed heroes champion our mission to save lives and bring hope and healing to those affected by suicide. 


"Suicide is a symptom of mental health conditions we need to feel able to talk about with others WITHOUT the feat of being judged. I support AFSP in helping to end the stigma."
