Suicide affects each state differently.
About the AFSP Arizona chapter
The Arizona chapter was chartered in 2010 by a dedicated group of volunteers on a mission to transform their losses in to something with meaning an purpose. Our chapter focuses on leading with a service heart and we continuously strive to carry out the organizational mission to: Save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
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.
