Losing a loved one to suicide is heart-wrenching, which is why it’s so important to offer support to anyone involved. One of our partner charities, AFSP, provides hope for those affected by suicide. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) offers research, education, and advocacy to help prevent suicide from happening in the first place.
As the leading cause of death, suicide demands our attention and our action. AFSP reaches down to the root of the problem by creating a culture educated about mental health. When you make your No1Down donation to AFSP, your contribution goes towards the following:
- Funding scientific research.
- Educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention.
- Advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention.
- Supporting survivors of suicide loss and those affected by suicide.
Since its start in 1987, this voluntary health organization has spread its influence to all 50 states. It was the first non-profit organization on a national level dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide. Since its founding, AFSP has educated hundreds of communities about suicide prevention and pressed for legislation that advances the goal of preventing suicide.
With your No1Down donation to AFSP, you can comfort those who have lossed loved ones to suicide and prevent it from happening to others. For more information about AFSP and its mission, you can visit the website here.
