About State Capitol Days
Each year, AFSP’s State Capitol Day events bring volunteers together with their state and local elected officials to share information and encourage them to make suicide prevention a priority. Each event is customized with the help of the AFSP Public Policy Team to meet each state’s unique needs and legislative priorities. State Capitol Day events are either put on by a single AFSP chapter, organized by several chapters within a state, or done in coordination with partner mental health and suicide prevention organizations outside of AFSP. In 2018, AFSP chapters have hosted 34 State Capitol Day events, resulting in increased knowledge by lawmakers and legislation promoting mental health.▲ Back to Top
