About the AFSP Greater Sacramento chapter

The Greater Sacramento Chapter is proud to represent the communities from the Oregon border to the Sacramento Valley. We are  active throughout the year with educational, programmatic, and outreach activities as well as the 7 Out of the Darkness Community & Campus Walks each fall & 5 Survivor Day sites each November.

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.
