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.

AFSP Illinois Volunteers organize our events, share our resources in the community, and raise awareness about suicide prevention.

If you are interested in giving back consider registering for an Out of the Darkness Community Walk in Illinois or apply to volunteer on an ongoing basis for one of our many volunteer outreach committees.

Thank you for your support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP)!
