I’m walking in the Overnight because suicide is one of the leading causes of death, and yet suicide prevention doesn’t get anywhere near the funding given to other leading causes. I’ve learned from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention that fighting suicide is about creating a culture that’s smart about mental health, and most importantly, it’s about saving lives.
In the last 10 years, AFSP has grown from a grassroots network of researchers and families who wanted to take action, into a national movement of 75 chapters across the country. AFSP is also the largest private funder of suicide prevention research, and because they‘ve built the infrastructure to deliver evidence-based programs to local communities, their work impacts millions of people. They are consistently ranked one of the best charities for mental health, and they are powered by everyday heroes like us: $5, $20, $100-every donation helps.
