Annual Advocacy Forum

Annual Advocacy Forum  

The Annual Advocacy Forum is AFSP's single largest effort to educate federal officials about suicide and they ways they can help to prevent it.

Highlights from the 2014 Advocacy Forum are available here. Stay up to date with a live stream on Twitter at #AFSPForum14.

Each year, the Advocacy Forum brings together Suicide Prevention Advocates, volunteers, and AFSP staff to network, share the latest research, and provide the public and policy makers with the information and tools they need to be effective advocates in preventing suicide.

Participants from around the country share their personal stories and experiences with suicide, engage members of Congress in discussion on important suicide prevention issues, and share AFSP’s Federal Policy Priorities. Discussions also address funding for AFSP’s educational programs and promising research aimed at reducing the rate of suicide nationwide.
