AFSP Capital Region New York

The Capital Region NY Chapter of AFSP was formally chartered in May 2006 and serves 15 counties in New York State.

About the AFSP Capital Region New York Chapter

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.

The Capital Region Chapter of AFSP was formally chartered in May 2006 and serves 15 counties in New York State. Since its inception, the chapter engages in a careful strategic planning process managed by a local Board of Directors who are committed to addressing the public health issue of suicide. Collectively, we embrace our responsibility to educate others about suicide prevention.  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.
