About the AFSP South Central Pennsylvania chapter

AFSP South Central Pennsylvania is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.  Our grassroots efforts are designed to create a culture that’s smart about mental health.

We empower our communities by delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, supporting individuals who have lost someone to suicide, and reaching out to those with lived experience.

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 South Central Pennsylvania chapter currently covers an eight-county region serving  Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and York counties.
