About the AFSP Western Pennsylvania chapter

Our Chapter Blog  |  Support Groups in Western PA  | Fundraising for Our AFSP Chapter  |  Our Speakers and Education Programs

The Western PA chapter covers 20 counties in the western part of the state, and is fueled by the efforts of our volunteers to help save lives and support those affected by suicide loss. The counties we cover include: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Fayette, Forest, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, McKean, Mercer, Warren, Venango, Washington, and Westmoreland.

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. We DO NOT directly provide mental health or crisis services.
