Get Involved

Every year California loses approximately 3800 people to suicide. Experts estimate that a suicide attempt is made every minute of every day, and a person in the United States dies by suicide every 13.7 minutes. 

Volunteer support is vital to our success. Please help us work to change the view of mental illness and create a world without suicide through research and education. Browse this site to see what we are working on here in the Greater Sacramento Region and learn more about how you can get involved.

Through the contribution of their time, talent, and passion, our volunteers are leading the movement to prevent suicide in local communities across the nation.

They are the driving force behind increasing the public’s awareness of suicide as a public health issue that is preventable. Together, our chapter volunteers deliver innovative prevention programs for schools and business, reach out to survivors of suicide loss, organize fundraising events, and act as a go-to resource for their entire community.

Whatever your background, strengths, or interests, our chapter needs you. Let’s make a difference in the lives of those who have been touched by suicide in our community. Please join us today.
