The grassroots work AFSP does focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by: delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.
Founded in 1987, AFSP has chapters in fifty states. The Wisconsin chapter participates in featured national programs such as: “More Than Sad: Teen Depression,” “It’s Real,” and “Talk Saves Lives.” There are also continuing local events to offer support, educate, and raise money. The upcoming fundraiser, “Out of the Darkness-Community Walks,” is an annual walk that will be held this year on September 18 at the Riverbend Trail in Merrill, WI.
