About Us

AFSP raises awareness, funds scientific research and provides resources and aid to those affected by suicide. We have a bold goal to reduce the suicide rate by 20% by the year 2025.

We fund research to improve interventions, train clinicians in suicide prevention, and advocate for policy that will save lives. Too many people at risk for suicide do not seek help. We need to find better ways to reach those who suffer, and encourage schools, workplaces, and communities to make mental health a priority. Whether you’ve lost someone or are struggling with suicidal thinking—you are not alone. We bring people who have been affected by suicide out of the darkness, and give them opportunities to help others.

In 2019 the Central Texas Chapter delivered over 65 education programs. We hosted four Out of the Darkness Walks and four International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day events. We were able to increase awareness in the community by reaching over 3,400 social media followers. We made a difference in public policy with over 254 field advocates fighting for local and federal policy change.
