About the AFSP National Capital Area Chapter
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP has local chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia with programs and events nationwide. The AFSP National Capital Area Chapter (NCAC) serves the Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia areas.
We here at AFSP NCAC are at the forefront of suicide prevention. We create a culture that’s smart about mental health through education and community programs, research and advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide. As a voluntary organization, our grassroots efforts engage families, mental health professionals, community and local business leaders, school administrators and others interested in preventing suicide. We hope you will join us in the fight to #StopSuicide by supporting the AFSP NCAC as a volunteer, walker, advocate, donor, or sponsor!
