About the AFSP Arizona Chapter

Join the Arizona Out of the Darkness Experience on November 14th!

This fall we are inviting participants, teams, sponsors, and donors from Flagstaff, Tucson, Sierra Vista, Prescott, Phoenix and across Arizona to rally together in spirit as we take action together on one day in support of Suicide Prevention in Arizona. This year we have re-imagined some of the most special elements of the Out of the Darkness Walk into an experience participants can recreate with their own families and teams on November 14th called the Arizona Out of the Darkness Experience.

The Out of the Darkness Experience will be a statewide event on November 14th but there will still be local opportunities to support the Experience that are specific to your walk region. We encourage you to register on the experience page for the walk region closest to where you live:

While things may look different, our mission to Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide has not changed. We are a strong and resilient community, united in our effort to fight suicide, raise awareness, educate our communities, support those who have lost loved ones, and support those with lived experience. As a chapter, we remain dedicated to providing you with opportunities to connect, heal, share stories, create impact, and show you that you are not alone.

About the Arizona Chapter:

The Arizona chapter was chartered in 2010 by a dedicated group of volunteers on a mission to transform their losses in to something with meaning an purpose.  Our chapter focuses on leading with a service heart and we continuously strive to carry out the organizational mission to: Save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.

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.
