About the AFSP Georgia Chapter

The grassroots work our chapter does focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide in Georgia 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. Our staff and volunteers do programs often.

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.

Our chapter serves all of Georgia. Our mailing address is:  1920 Dresden Drive #191591  Atlanta, GA 31119.

The Georgia Chapter is committed to providing as many prevention programs as we can to our community. We are pleased to offer all modules of Talk Saves Lives and More Than Sad for parents and educators virtually and free of charge. We routinely do programs for businesses of all sizes, conferences, PTAs, schools, community organizations, faith groups, and more!
