About Our Chapter

Welcome. We are the Oregon chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by: delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

As a part of AFSP’s growing nationwide network of chapters, we bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter.

The Oregon Chapter was founded and chartered in 2010 and serves the entire state of Oregon.  

The Oregon Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for new board members. The Oregon chapter board is the Advisory body for the Chapter which is responsible for ensuring that all Chapter activities are conducted in accordance with AFSP Bylaws, policies and Chapter Operating Procedures. If you would like more information about the Oregon Chapter board or to receive an application, please send a letter of interest to Oregon@afsp.org with "Board Member Application Request" as the subject line.
