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 11 Maryland Out of the Darkness Walks to fight suicide!
About the AFSP Maryland 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.
It’s Real is a documentary featuring the stories of six college students from across the country.
Talk Saves Lives: An Introduction to Suicide Prevention is a community-based presentation that covers the general scope of suicide, the research on prevention, and what people can do to fight suicide.
