About the AFSP Tennessee Chapter
The Tennessee Chapter serves all 95 counties in the Volunteer State. Our Board Chair, Brenda Williams-Denbo, as well as those who serve on the Tennessee Board of Directors are 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 education programs – Program Calendar
- Advocating for public policies that are smart about mental health – Become an Advocate
- 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 Tennessee Chapter today.
