AFSP Nebraska

Welcome to the Nebraska Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention where our mission is to Save Lives and Bring Hope to Nebraskans Affected by Suicide.

About the AFSP Nebraska Chapter

Our mission is to help save lives and bring hope to Nebraskans affected by suicide. The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide through innovative prevention education, outreach to loss survivors, advocacy and policy work, and raising funds for vital suicide prevention research.

We know suicide and mental health do not discriminate and every Nebraskan is deserving of prevention and postvention resources. We are dedicated to serving the entire state of Nebraska, including marginalized communities and rural communities. We work diligently to bring together communities of diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to this cause. 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. We invite you to join our mission and help us save lives in Nebraska. 

Become a Member of Nebraska's Circle of Hope!

Annual Giving Society

Circle of Hope is a passionate group of individuals dedicated to funding efforts to prevent suicide through a personal gift to the Nebraska Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Through society member support, life-saving strategies and programs will be brought to local Nebraska communities so we can one day build a world without suicide. Join us today as a charter member of this new society and become a partner in saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.
