Ways to Connect with the Western Pennsylvania Chapter

Host a Presentation

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers a variety of programs to help save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide! For a full list of our programs, check out this digital programs booklet.

Some of our featured programs include:

  • Talk Saves Lives Our introductory suicide prevention program and its specialty modules is appropriate for a range of audiences aged 18+. 
  • More Than Sad This teen-specific program is for adolescents aged 14-18, parents, and educators. We work with schools and youth-based programs to implement regular trainings. 
  • It's Real: College Students and Mental Health This program is designed for high school seniors and college students to encourage help-seeking with an unscripted documentary and facilitated discussion. We collaborate with schools and universities to incorporate this program into their curriculum.

Talks Saves Lives

Sponsor an Event

Funds donated to AFSP go towards research, prevention education programs, loss and healing resources, and advocacy. Our Out of the Darkness Walks are our largest source of funding to be able to deliver these programs and resources to the community, in addition to giving those affected by suicide a chance to come together in support and healing. Our sponsors play a huge role in making these events happen! With most sponsorship opportunities starting as low as $100, it is easy for businesses and groups of any size to support suicide prevention in their community! Sponsor packets can be easily customized for specific programs as well.

Request Resources

We offer a variety of resources and can customize packets specific to your needs! Our resource request is perfect for:

  • Those personally seeking more information
  • Businesses looking to offer resources to their employees
  • Churches and other groups wanting to offer mental health and healing resources
  • Events that reach the community (i.e. health fairs, state and county fairs, Pride events, concerts and festivals, farmers markets, veteran events, etc.)
  • And more! Fill out the request form below for more information.

 

Request resources for personal, company, or event use here!

If you have lost someone to suicide, we are so sorry for your loss and would like to connect you with resources. Please request a packet of loss and healing information to help you in your grief journey. We encourage you to connect with trained volunteers who are also suicide loss survivors through our Healing Conversations Program as well.
