Out of the Darkness Walks

AFSP Delaware

The work we do focuses on educating our communities about mental health and suicide prevention, advocating for public policy, and offering support for suicide loss survivors. Join us for the annual Dover and Wilmington Out of the Darkness Walk!

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. The license plate is a great way to help #stopsuicide in Delaware and beyond!

Finding Hope Through Religion: Together, We Can Stop Suicide in the Queer Community

As a queer Christian, I see how much pain and suffering my queer siblings face, and the statistics around suicide in the LGBTQ community are heartbreaking. Through organizations such as AFSP and The Trevor Project, I have learned so much about suicide prevention in the LGBTQ community.
