AFSP Colorado

The AFSP Colorado Chapter is primarily made up of volunteers working to prevent suicide here in Colorado - and to provide support to those in our community who have been impacted by suicide.

About the AFSP Colorado 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.

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.

Organizations may request information and/or presentations such as AFSP materials, Talk Saves Lives/Education, safeTALK, Mental Health First Aid, and ASIST. To make a request with the AFSP Colorado Chapter, please fill out our online Chapter Request Form. Thank you for your patience as you await a response.

The AFSP Colorado Chapter is primarily made up of volunteers working to prevent suicide here in Colorado - and to provide support to those in our community who have been impacted by suicide. Hear from our volunteers on their involvement in the AFSP Colorado Chapter and its mission on our AFSP Colorado Chapter Videos page.
