AFSP Central Texas

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.

About the AFSP Central Texas Chapter

Welcome to the AFSP Central Texas Chapter!  Our chapter covers the following 30 counties in Central Texas:
Bastrop, Bell, Blanco, Brown, Burleson, Burnet, Caldwell, Coryell, Falls, Fayette, Gillespie, Hamilton, Hays, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Lampasas, Lee, Limestone, Llano, Mason, McCulloch, McLennan, Menard, Milam, Mills, Robertson, San Saba, Travis, and Williamson.

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.
