About the AFSP New York City Chapter

The grassroots work we do 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 individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

We bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter. Visit our Chapter page at afsp.org/NYC.


Featured Programs

The AFSP New York City Chapter offers many community programs for suicide prevention to individuals, organizations, and employers across the city. If you - or the group that you represent - is interested in hosting a presentation, educational program, or professional training, please complete our Program Request Form. For questions, please contact Programs Manager Samantha Remulla at sremulla@afsp.org.

Talk Saves Lives

Talk Saves Lives is a community-based presentation that covers the general scope of suicide, the research on prevention, and what people can do to fight suicide. Attendees will learn the risk and warning signs of suicide, and how together, we can help prevent it. 

Contact us to learn about the different modules available, such as our Latinx & Hispanic Communities module, our LGBTQ+ Community module, our Seniors module, and more.

It's Real

As summer leads into fall, we want to focus on suicide prevention in schools.  The AFSP-produced film It's Real: College Students and Mental Health is designed to raise awareness about mental health issues commonly experienced by students and is intended to be used as part of a school's educational program to encourage help-seeking.

We also offer an It's Real: Teens and Mental Health program for high school classes or community settings with groups of teens.
