More Than Sad: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
We are increasing the number of community-based chapters, now at 39, with two-dozen more in development. And we have a growing list of friends and supporters leading a grassroots constituency that can advocate for the policies and legislation at the state and federal levels to advance suicide prevention.
With a suicide attempt estimated to occur every minute of every day in the United States and over 34,000 lives lost each year, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
Visit www.asfp.org for more priceless and educational information. More Than Sad offers valuable information on teen depression, suicide and other tools to help you parent your children through difficult times.
