In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the AFSP California Chapters are inviting all hikers, walkers, runners, family, and friends to join the Statewide Hike for Hope Event and walk various trails while raising funds for AFSP. 

Our mission to Save Lives and Bring Hope to Those Affected by Suicide has not changed. We are a strong and resilient community, united in our effort to fight suicide, raise awareness, educate our communities, support those who have lost loved ones, and support those with lived experience.
