About the AFSP Greater Philadelphia chapter


The Greater Philadelphia Chapter serves Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties. Our Board Chair, Scott Godshall, ESQ, as well as those who serve on the Philadelphia Board of Directors are very active in our communities bringing both education and awareness programs to schools and organizations, in addition to supporting those touched by the tragedy of suicide. Help us reduce the suicide rate by 20% by 2025. Together we can #StopSuicide. Learn more about Project 2025.

The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by:

  • Delivering innovative prevention programs – Community Walks
  • Educating the public about risk factors and warning signs – Chapter Events
  • Raising funds for suicide research and programs – Research Connection
  • Reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide – Loss and Healing

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 work continues to grow and we welcome anyone who would like to join our fight in turning the tide on suicide statistics. Please join our fight and our mission by volunteering and supporting the Greater Philadelphia Chapter.
