About the AFSP Delaware Chapter
The Delaware DMV now offers a customized suicide prevention license plate to help raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. A specialty license plate costs $50 per registration (one-time payment) and $35 of each plate purchased go directly to AFSP Delaware to support our lifesaving work.
