About the AFSP North Florida 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.
Our Chapter serves Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Levy, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns and Union. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 1427, Wildwood, FL 34785.
Our Chapter is committed to providing as many prevention programs as we can to our community. We are pleased to offer Talk Saves Lives, Talk Saves Lives for Workplaces, It's Real: College Students and Mental Health, It's Real Teens and Mental Health and More Than Sad for parents and educators virtually and free of charge. We routinely do programs for businesses of all sizes, conferences, PTAs, school, community organizations, faith groups, and more!
