Association for Suicide Prevention
Our mission: Save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide
We’ve set a bold goal to reduce the annual suicide rate in the U.S. 20 percent by 2025.
Suicide is a leading cause of death—and it’s preventable
Suicide most often occurs when stressors exceed the current coping capacity of someone suffering from a mental health condition.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
We are the leader in the fight against suicide. We fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. Led by CEO Robert Gebbia and headquarted in New York, AFSP has local chapters in all 50 states.
Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
Why We Walk
The Out of the Darkness Walks are proof that when people work together they can make big changes in the world.
