Join us on February 3, 2020 and tell lawmakers why suicide prevention is important to you! In the morning we are excited to host our very first Rally to Prevent Suicide in Arizona. Just by showing up you will be making a statement that you believe mental health should be treated as just as important as physical health. Community members will also be sharing stories of how mental health and suicide have impacted their lives.
Want to do more? Join us for AFSP Arizona State Capitol Day in the afternoon. Volunteers will have the opportunity to meet with state legislators to let them know why suicide prevention should be a priority and advocate for public policies that save lives.
Update 1/31 : Registration has expired for those wishing to attend State Capitol Day and meet with legislators. For those unable to attend State Capitol Day, we would still love to have you join us at the Rally! Registration is no longer being required for the Rally and all are welcome.
