Have you ever wondered what leads someone to make a suicide attempt, or how thinking may be different for the suicidal person? Does suicide run in families? How are genes related to suicide? These are the kinds of questions we attempt to answer through our state-of-the-art research portfolio.
AFSP was founded as a research organization dedicated to exploring how to save lives. Over 30 years later, we remain the largest private funder of suicide prevention research, shaping suicide prevention strategies around the world.
