About the AFSP North Carolina Chapter

Here in North Carolina, and nationwide, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is a grassroots non-profit, run 99% by VOLUNTEERS like you. Our work focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors & warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have been affected by suicide.

As a part of AFSP’s nationwide network of chapters, we bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Our chapter is energized by the families and friends who've lost someone to suicide, by those with Lived Experience, by mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others..
