Suicide affects each state differently.
About the AFSP Arkansas chapter
Our mission is to:
“Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide”
Join us in our bold goal to reduce the rate of Suicide rates 20% by the the year 2025.
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.
The Arkansas Chapter was honored to receive three awards at the Leadership Conference in Denver, Colorado in January. Chapter volunteers were on hand to accept the following awards:
2019 Outstanding Chapter Support of Research
2019 Century Club Walk (Little Rock)
2019 Chapter of the Year Small Market
We thank all our volunteers, sponsors, donors and supporters for making this recognition possible.
