State Capitol Days
Sharing personal stories, experiences, and the latest research, we talk with state and local elected officials and their staff about how we can work together to prevent suicide and improve mental health.
About State Capitol Days
AFSP State Capitol Day events bring volunteers together to educate state and local elected officials about suicide prevention and mental health. AFSP chapters hosted 22 State Capitol Day events in 2016. No two events were exactly the same – chapters worked with the AFSP Public Policy Team to customize each event to their state’s unique needs and legislative priorities. Our 2016 events also represented several different event “models” – some events are put on by a single AFSP chapter, some are organized by several chapters working together in the state, and some are done in coordination with partner mental health and suicide prevention organizations outside of AFSP. No matter which model you choose, your Public Policy Team will work with you every step of the way to plan and execute an exciting and meaningful event!▲ Back to Top
