About the AFSP Greater Philadelphia chapter
The Greater Philadelphia Chapter serves Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties. Our Board Chair, Jan Evans, as well as those who serve on the Philadelphia Board are very active in our communities bringing both education and awareness programs to schools and organizations, in addition to supporting those touched by the tragedy of suicide. Our focus is on AFSP’s National Goal of reducing the suicide rate 20% by the year 2015. Please join our fight and our mission by supporting the Greater Philadelphia Chapter
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.
Our Chapter work continues to grow and we welcome anyone who would like to join our fight in turning the tide on suicide statistics.
