Mission

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

Program Description

Our innovative educational materials help teachers, parents, youth, and community leaders to understand suicide risk factors and warning signs, and support their efforts to assist those at risk for suicide to get the help they need.

We also collect and disseminate the latest research on suicide causation and prevention to physicians and mental health professionals so that they may more easily recognize and reduce suicide risk. And we work to reduce the stigma that deters so many people from seeking help.

AFSP seeks to reduce suicide and suicide attempts by developing and implementing our own innovative approaches to suicide prevention.

If you are in crisis, call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
