American Foundation for Suicide Prevention



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

AFSP has the most up to date statistics page with graphics that clearly communicate the increase in suicide and the need for prevention programs.
