About the AFSP New Jersey chapter

Events   |   Lifesaver Blog   |   Programs 

The New Jersey Chapter is fueled by the mission to save lives by providing education and support to the Garden State.

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.

Survivor Day

November 17 is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, a day when suicide loss survivors will gather to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope. To register for a local Survivor Day in your community, go to:

Giving Tuesday

November 27 is Giving Tuesday and this year, more than ever, it is important we take bold steps in the fight against suicide. Give today and mark your calendars for November 27 so that you can declare #iGiveBoldly to AFSP.
