We are the largest private funder of suicide prevention research
AFSP began as a research organization dedicated to finding the best ways to prevent suicide, and thanks to donors like you we’ve been able to fund millions in research across multiple scientific disciplines.
Much of what is known about suicide comes from studies that AFSP has funded
Our studies open up new areas of inquiry, and our council of scientific advisers helps set the national research agenda.
