#BeTheVoice of suicide prevention in Oregon

We know times are tough and it has been a long road since 2020 but we hope you will make a commitment to support suicide prevention today. Most of the funds used to keep our chapter operating are raised right now through our Out of the Darkness Walks, and we need your support to keep this work going. Register today to help save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Thank You!

About the AFSP Oregon 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 those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

As a part of AFSP’s growing nationwide network of chapters, 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 chapters.

The AFSP Oregon chapter had an incredible year in 2020 because of the efforts of folks like you. When we raise funds, we increase public awareness and make huge strides in education, advocacy, outreach and research.
