  • Mission:
  • The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

  • Overview:
  • To fully achieve its mission, AFSP engages in the following Five Core Strategies:

    Fund scientific research
    Offer educational programs for professionals
    Educate the public about mood disorders and suicide prevention
    Promote policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention
    Provide programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involve them in the work of the Foundation

  • History:
  • In 1987, a small group of caring individuals had a vision: establish a private source of support for suicide research and education, and essential suicide prevention efforts could be sustained into the future. These founding families—each of whom had lost a someone to suicide—joined with scientists to create what today is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, or AFSP.

    Many of our original founders were concerned about an alarming rise in youth suicide over the previous four decades. During this period, the suicide of young men had tripled while for young women it had doubled. Suicide is currently the third leading cause of death among young people age 15 to 24. The highest overall rates of suicide are for adults age 40 to 59.

    Before AFSP, there was no national-scope not-for-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy.
