AFSP raises awareness, funds scientific research and provides resources and aid to those affected by suicide. Learn more about AFSP’s mission and history or select one of the items below to discover how we accomplish our work.
Finding better ways to prevent suicide
We fund research to improve interventions, train clinicians in suicide prevention, and advocate for policy that will save lives.
Creating a culture that’s smart about mental health
Too many people at risk for suicide do not seek help. We need to find better ways to reach those who suffer, and encourage schools, workplaces, and communities to make mental health a priority.
Interactive Screening Program
Bringing hope to those affected by suicide
Whether you’ve lost someone or are struggling with suicidal thinking—you are not alone. We bring people who have been affected by suicide out of the darkness, and give them opportunities to help others.
