We Are All Connected

At AFSP we believe in connecting people to saves lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Suicide is a public health crisis. It’s the 10th leading cause of death, and we can all have a role in preventing it. By uniting in this common goal to stop suicide, we are stronger together and have done much this year to educate the public about suicide prevention, advocate for public policies to advance our mission, and fund innovative research to save lives.

Bringing Communities Together
We Are Stronger Together Our chapters, spanning all 50 states, mobilize thousands of volunteers in carrying out our mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.

Thanks to their efforts, individuals in communities nationwide have a place to turn, no matter what their connection to suicide. Our chapters connect recent loss survivors to help and comfort when it’s most needed. Our resources ensure that more people are aware of the warning signs, and know how to connect those who struggle to help. Schools and workplaces are bolstered by our prevention and postvention materials and programs, helping to ensure safe and supportive environments for everyone throughout our communities. Thousands of family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers join together at the Out of the Darkness Walks throughout the year, symbolizing that through awareness and support, this is a fight we can win.

Celebrating Our Chapters

Chapters from all 50 states converged on Charlotte, North Carolina in January for our Annual Chapter Leadership Conference. Based around the theme of “Transforming Communities to Prevent Suicide,” the three-day event featured panels and discussions on topics critical to the organization’s mission, and empowered AFSP staff and volunteers with tools they can use to reduce the suicide rate in our respective communities around the U.S.

Funding Innovative Research
The more we learn about suicide, the greater the chance we have of preventing it.

AFSP is the largest private funder of suicide research. We shape suicide prevention efforts around the world through our Scientific Council and Scientific Advisors, determining which areas of inquiry warrant further investigation. Current topics of research include:

  • gaining a greater understanding of brain function and the genetics of suicide
  • discovering how best to help individuals in the high-risk period after hospitalization
  • understanding more about how access to lethal means impacts suicide risk
  • learning how best to help teens hospitalized for a suicide attempt re-enter school successfully

Fostering Understanding Through Education AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health by developing evidence-informed programs using the latest science on suicide prevention, and implementing these programs across the country.

This past year, our chapters hosted nearly 2,000 education programs with close to 60,000 attendees, including community members, teachers, parents, students and clinicians.

The Talk Saves Lives™: An Introduction to Suicide Prevention program, which covers the general scope of suicide and the latest research on prevention, has reached 68,000 people through more than 1,300 events since it launched in 2015.

Since its launch in 2017, our chapters have led over 100 It’s Real: College Students and Mental Health presentations, reaching more than 6,000 students.

We also expanded our Stronger Communities conference series this year, hosting three conferences on LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention and a new program focused on strategies for suicide prevention in New England.

Reaching More People Through Technology Technology can play a crucial role in helping schools identify at-risk students, and quickly getting them the help they need.

That’s why we’ve teamed with GoGuardian, a leading education technology provider to supply free, on-site, suicide prevention trainings for school administrators, teachers, staff, and their parents. AFSP’s More Than Sad program, designed to teach educators how to recognize signs of mental health distress in students and connect them with help, will be made available to school at no cost with the GoGuardian Beacon™ tool, which alerts school staff when students exhibit online behaviors that may indicate risk for suicide.

More than one million students and educators have completed the More Than Sad training since its debut in 2009.

Fighting for Smarter Laws
and Policies Across the U.S.
Raising a Call to Action With the help of volunteer Field Advocates in communities across the country, we’re advocating for change at the state and federal level. Suicide is currently the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, with nearly 45,000 Americans dying by suicide each year.
State Capitol Days

Our State Capitol Day events have more than doubled in the last three years. Over 1,000 people attended 32 different State Capitol Day events in 2018, educating public officials as to what they can do to help #StopSuicide in their state and communities. The result was the successful passage of 13 different bills on issues including greater data collection on veteran suicide, increased suicide prevention training for educators and primary care professionals, statewide crisis lines, and more.

Annual Advocacy Forum

Our annual Advocacy Forum, held in Washington, D.C., brought volunteers from across the country for in-person meetings in all 100 Senate offices and 380 House offices, with information folders dropped off at all remaining House offices, urging movement on national priorities including:

  • military and veteran suicide prevention
  • greater funding for mental health and substance abuse services, and suicide prevention services
  • greater funding for suicide prevention research

We achieved several major federal successes this year:

  • passage of the National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act
  • increased funding for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
  • funding for the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) in all 50 states, which provides essential data and informs suicide prevention strategies

Saving the Most Lives in the
Shortest Amount of Time
Project 2025 Project 2025 is our bold goal to identify and implement the programs, policies and interventions that will save the most lives in the shortest amount of time.

As part of our efforts, we’ve partnered with the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHC) to enhance suicide prevention efforts in our nation’s jails and prisons.

51%

of all suicides in the U.S. are by firearm

39%

of all those who take their life visited an E.R. the year before

Fifty-one percent of all suicides in the U.S. are by firearm, and 60 percent of all firearm deaths are suicide. With this in mind, we’ve collaborated with the National Shooting Sports Foundation to conduct a first-ever survey of firearms retailers and range owners on knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors towards suicide prevention, with the ultimate goal of ensuring that our country’s many gun owners have the guidance needed to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

We forged a partnership with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the largest emergency professional membership organization in the world, representing over 37,000 physicians, residents, and medical students. Together, we have launched an online tool (named iCAR2E after its recommended steps) for the rapid identification and treatment of patients with suicide risk in the E.D.

Protecting and Remembering Those Who Serve We made it a top priority this year to reach the men and women who serve, and have served, in our military.

AFSP formed a groundbreaking partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Veterans have a higher rate of suicide than the general population, yet only one in three veterans access help through the Veterans Administration. That’s why we’re also working with the Cohen Foundation, to connect veterans and their families to mental health care and other services.

Our partnership with the American College of Emergency Physicians, the largest emergency professional membership organization in the world, will result in widespread implementation of improved care for suicidal patients in emergency departments.

We’ve also launched a pilot program to implement a new suicide prevention educational model for primary care physicians and staff in 5 states, and eventually 200 primary care practices nationwide, through SafeSide Prevention.

Creating a Culture That’s Smart About Mental Health
Seizing the Awkward Young people are more eager than ever before to talk openly about mental health. By doing so, they can help ensure their friends connect to help when they need it.

AFSP gave them the tools, guidance, and encouragement to do that by launching Seize the Awkward, a vibrant national public service campaign with our partners the Ad Council and the Jed Foundation. Filled with clever and informative posters, social sharables, and instructive videos from top social media influencers, the digital-first campaign has been viewed more than 13 million times.

Thanks to the campaign, young adults who have watched the videos and viewed the materials are 36 percent more likely to:
  • have confidence in knowing how to support a friend struggling with their mental health
  • feel comfortable starting a conversation about mental health, and connecting someone to help

Having a #RealConvo
About Mental Health

May was Mental Health Awareness Month. As part of our efforts, we launched our #RealConvo campaign, encouraging our audience on social media to let their followers know, “You Can Have a #RealConvo with Me.” Dear Evan Hansen star Alex Boniello, as well as Fox and ESPN helped get the word out. Our reach that month was 75.9K on Twitter, 351K on Facebook, and 18.4K on Instagram.

We also worked with Netflix and the creators of 13 Reasons Why, in conjunction with the show’s second season, to create a resource guide focused on how to talk about mental health for schools and students. Our 13 Reasons Why webpage containing information for parents received over 13,000 views, and had a reach of nearly 160,000 on social media. Our messages about 13 Reasons Why were featured on Mashable and National Public Radio, on a blog from Mental Health America, and in other outlets.

Increasing Awareness This past June, within a single week, our nation reacted to the loss of celebrities Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, followed by the release of a CDC report confirming suicide has increased 28 percent since 1999.
Increasing Awareness
AFSP led the charge in responding to an unprecedented number of media inquiries, conducting over 50 interviews from our national office, sharing safe reporting guidelines, appearing on numerous TV programs, and using this moment in time as an opportunity to guide the conversation and spread awareness, hope and education.

Anderson Cooper, who lost his brother to suicide, drew on AFSP’s guidance to conduct a CNN ‘town hall’-style program, “Finding Hope: Battling America’s Suicide Crisis,” featuring AFSP’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Christine Moutier, who also appeared as a guest on CBS This Morning. A follow-up story on CBS focused on those with lived experience of suicide, including AFSP volunteers who have found meaning through their involvement in our work.

Senior Vice President of Public Policy John Madigan appeared in a C-SPAN report, commenting on the CDC report, rising suicide rates, and the importance of our work advocating for smarter mental health and suicide prevention legislation.

NBC senior national correspondent Kate Snow revealed the devastating impact her father-in-law’s suicide had on her family in a report featuring Dr. Moutier, who helped make sense of the impact these events had made on our national consciousness. “I feel like the two losses that occurred touched people in a very intense way. Having the CDC report launch right in the middle of that, I think has engaged people both in their heart as well as in their head, to really feel this, and understand it.”

“We’re definitely in a transition phase right now, where there’s both a huge progression of improvement, and a mixture of some of the old assumptions and judgements still floating around,” Dr. Moutier noted in an article in The Atlantic entitled, “When Will People Get Better at Talking About Suicide?” “I’m referring to blaming the person for being cowardly, or assuming that suicide is a sudden and unpredictable fluky moment of losing their head. That really goes against the science.”

Love Finds a Way The romance novel community came together to participate in the sixth annual Mental Health Awareness Month Book Fundraiser.

More than 37 romance authors donated a portion of their proceeds from the sales of some of their biggest titles to benefit AFSP through the Keith Milano Memorial Fund, begun by Denise Milano Sprung and her husband Larry in honor of her brother Keith, whom she lost to suicide in 2004.

A September to Remember One of the risks of suicide is social isolation.
 No matter what our role in our community — as a teacher, a neighbor, a physician, a mother, or a veteran —it’s important we reach out and make connections in everyday moments with those we come in contact with, letting them know it’s always smart to have a #RealConvo about mental health and suicide prevention.
Christine Moutier - The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

In September, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine hosted a two-day workshop focused on Suicide Prevention called “Improving Care to Prevent Suicide Among People with Serious Mental Illness.” AFSP Chief Medical Officer, Christine Moutier, provided an overview of suicide prevention and evidence based strategies, including a highlight of Project 2025, along with AFSP Field Staff member, Taryn Aiken, who shared her compelling story of suicide loss and lived experience. The NASEM report summarizing the meeting presents several critical and actionable strategies for preventing suicide within the American healthcare systems.

The People Who Make Our Mission Possible
We Are All Connected Message from the Chief Executive Officer
and Chair, Board of Directors

Dear Friends,

At the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) we believe in connecting people to saves lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Suicide is a public health crisis. It’s the 10th leading cause of death, and we can all have a role in preventing it. By uniting in this common goal to stop suicide, we are stronger together and have done much this year to educate the public about suicide prevention, advocate for public policies to advance our mission, and fund innovative research to save lives.

Our chapters connected people in every state with resources to keep their communities safe and better informed about mental health and suicide prevention, including AFSP’s educational program Talk Saves Lives, which reached more than 75,000 people this year. We hosted over 365 International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day events, providing comfort, connection and support to those who have lost loved ones. The AFSP Out of the Darkness Walks enabled a large community of suicide loss survivors and those who struggle to connect with one another, so no one has to be alone. Over 350,000 people participated in our Community, Campus and Overnight Walks, spreading awareness and raising funds for the cause.

This sense of connection throughout the United States is only growing stronger. As of this year, we have an incredible 20,000 volunteer field advocates, connecting with their state and federal representatives and fighting for legislation and policies that will help reduce suicide. And we had several major policy successes, including the passage of the National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act, which was signed into law and will improve crisis services nationwide for people in distress.

Financial contributions increased 45 percent this year to $37 million. This dramatic growth is a result of 700,000 new and returning donors connecting with AFSP and supporting our research and programs. And once again we kept our combined administrative costs and fundraising costs to 17.1 percent, well below the industry standard 25 percent.

How we use our donations to achieve results is of the highest priority to us. This year, we increased funding for research to $5.3 million, allowing us to fund 26 new research grants and bring our total support of current studies to a record $18 million. We connected the public with a stronger understanding of suicide prevention research through the release of a series of short videos featuring some of the world’s leading suicide researchers. Each video highlighted the impact of a researcher’s work, as well as some of the key learnings from their research. We also released a video that tells the story of how one attempt survivor’s lived experience was positively impacted by what has been learned from research.

As a result of our generous donors, we made substantial progress toward achieving our bold goal to reduce the U.S. suicide rate 20 percent by 2025. This year, we forged exciting partnerships to make this goal a reality, connecting with organizations including the Veterans Administration, Aetna, the American College of Emergency Physicians, the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, Bank of America, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, GoGuardian and others. And because 51 percent of suicides in the U.S. are by firearm, we connected with the firearms-owning community and educated them about the warning signs of suicide, safe storage practices and temporarily removing firearms from the home when someone is at risk.

Connecting large numbers of people to lifesaving information is another way we foster connection and cultural understanding of mental health and suicide prevention. We launched Seize the Awkward, our first major public service campaign, in partnership with the Jed Foundation and the Ad Council to educate and empower teens and young adults to help friends who are struggling with mental health problems and may be at-risk. To date, there have been over 13 million views of the PSA.

We also worked with the media and entertainment industry, including Netflix, CNN, CBS This Morning, The Mighty, Bustle and others to better educate millions on how to talk about mental health and suicide prevention. But there is still much work to be done. We were tragically reminded of this by the high-profile deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, and a CDC report reaffirming that suicide has been on the rise for nearly two decades. Thanks to our growing work with traditional and social media, more people than ever before realize how critical it is that we stem the tide and take actions we know will save lives. Indeed, we sense an encouraging shift in media attention and public perception away from the stigma that has long plagued the mental health field, toward a realization that caring for our mental health is every bit as important and normal as maintaining our physical health.

Thank you for connecting with us, for being a part of our community, for supporting our work, and for helping us strive for a day when we are all connected in our desire for a world without suicide.

Total net revenue grew $11.5 million from $25.5 million to $37 million, a 45 percent increase. AFSP kept expense growth low to $2.7 million, an increase of only 11.6 percent.

In spite of our rapid growth, AFSP program expense and overhead expense ratios stayed approximately the same at 82.9 and 17.1 percent of total expenses.

Our special events, walks, galas, races and a host of other events netted $23.2 million compared to $20.2 million the previous year, a 14.5 percent increase. Event expense increased from $4.8 to $5.6, a 14.8 percent increase.

Our fundraising expense ratio (the cost to raise $1) remained flat at 19.4 cents per dollar raised. We increased our investment in our people. The number of employees grew from 89 to 95 and the percentage of employee expense as a percent of total expenses increased from 32.4 to 33.6 percent.

Because our revenue exceeded our expense, AFSP was able to increase its net assets by over $11 million and increase the number of days cash on hand (number of days we could pay our bills if no more cash were coming in) from 186 days to 320 days.

Spotlight Story: Tough Guys Talk About It

Football star Solomon Thomas of the San Francisco 49ers lost his beloved big sister Ella to suicide. To honor her memory and help raise awareness and funds, he and his family walked in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk in Dallas this past June.

Ironically, it was Ella herself who laid the groundwork for the Thomas family’s involvement in AFSP. She had, before her death, asked her friend Landis to walk with her to honor a friend she had lost to suicide. Landis had kept the date on his calendar, and after Ella’s passing, reached out to Ella’s cousin Rei, and the rest of the Thomas family, to join him.

Solomon has since involved the San Francisco 49ers in supporting AFSP’s Northern California chapter.

"To families out there going through this: The best thing you can do is stay together. It's always one day at a time. Today you might not be as wrecked as you were yesterday, but your mom might be. So pull together to support her. The next day, she's probably gonna be the one lifting you up. That's how it goes.

I feel like someone out there is reading this right now who doesn't know how they are going to be able to make it through the rest of their life without the person who has just taken their life. Trust me, I know that feeling. But I know it can be done, as painful as it is. You've just gotta keep fighting every day. And to the people who are struggling with anxiety and depression, please do not feel bad about yourselves. Do not feel ashamed. It's not your fault. You're feeling that way for a reason. And there is help.

I've noticed that when you lose someone to suicide, a lot of people don't know what to say to you. It's human nature to ask what happened when you find out someone young died. But when the answer is that they took their own life, people tend to get quiet and change the subject, out of fear that it's too painful to talk about. I know these people mean well, but I'd rather talk about it than not talk about it. I'm always thinking about it anyway.

Talking helps. There's never a right thing to say, so stop worrying about saying the right thing.

This summer I did a walk for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and 2,000 people showed up. A lady who had lost five siblings and both parents to suicide came up to me and told me I was being so strong. Me? That blew me away. I met a woman whose son took his own life at age 10. Ten. This has to stop. Suicide is a top-five cause of death in America for ages 13 to 35, and according to the CDC, rates are rising in every state but one.

Losing one more person to suicide is one too many. Ella wouldn't want that. I want to live the rest of my life in a way that would make her proud. I want to help as many people as possible."

Spotlight Story: Awareness Through Art

Elie Kennedy is a mother on a mission.

As part of her healing process after the loss of her son 29-year-old son Anthony, Elie began volunteering for AFSP and participating in the Out of the DarknessTM Walks, leading a group known as Team Anthony. The team stands out at events with their unique, colorful mohawks in recognition of Anthony’s signature style. Anthony always cut his hair into a mohawk and Elie and her family wanted to continue this as a way to honor his life. This year, Team Anthony raised close to six thousand dollars, which will go toward important suicide prevention programs in the area.

Now a member of the board of the San Diego chapter, Elie is a mixed-media artist who channels her healing into her artwork, raising further funds for the cause while serving as a tribute to her son.

“My family has a favorite beach spot up in North County. We spent many days and years there, sitting in the same spot every time. After Anthony’s passing, I began painting the rocks my husband and I would find while at the beach. I’d leave them in our spot as a tribute. Generally, they washed away by the time we returned. But one day we came back, and found that one of the many rocks I’d painted was sitting there waiting for us. I had painted ‘ANT’ -- my nickname for him -- on it with a red heart. I took this as a sign that I should keep going. That he wanted me to paint rocks.”

Elie, who now refers to herself as an “Artivist for Suicide Prevention,” uses her creativity to raise awareness and funds, with every piece of art sold going to AFSP.

“Every suicide loss is a personal loss to me,” she says. “AFSP saved my life. When I first got involved, I felt welcomed, supported, understood and loved. Now I try to channel the painful energy to create something beautiful and positive.”

Spotlight Story: Research + Advocacy

Corbin J. Standley is a board member and secretary for AFSP’s Michigan chapter. He is also a researcher and doctoral student in ecological-community psychology, researching the socioecological risk and protective factors for suicide. Corbin became involved in the cause after losing his brother to suicide in 2010. Since then, he has been active in all areas of suicide prevention, including advocacy, research, education, and survivor support. His passion for prevention is both personal and professional.

As a volunteer Field Advocate, Corbin has become actively involved in local and Federal government, urging his elected officials to support smart mental health and suicide prevention legislation. This year, he succeeded in obtaining additional co-sponsors for one of AFSP’s top federal priority bills, the National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act, before its ultimate passage. He also worked closely with a member of the Michigan House of Representatives to begin organizing a statewide suicide prevention commission.

“Eight years ago, my life was changed forever.

On June 30, 2010, I lost my older brother, David, to suicide. He was 21-years-old and had a tremendous influence on me. The anniversary of his passing has caused me to reflect on the last year of my life and to think about my chosen profession, my personal identity, and how advocacy has helped to inform both.

David struggled with mental health conditions for much of his young life. For that reason, I knew early on that I wanted to study psychology.

Undoubtedly, this path was laid out for me as a result of my loss.”

Corbin’s research has helped inform his advocacy efforts. His current research examines the differences in suicide risk among youth based on the combination of gender, race and ethnicity, and sexual identity, as well as the role of social support in preventing youth suicide. Corbin has been able to bring this research into meetings with legislators to make the case for positive change.

Corbin has also worked with student organizations and campus departments at Michigan State University to encourage suicide prevention efforts and bring an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk to his school.

“Events such as AFSP’s Advocacy Forum reignite my passion for the work and illustrate its importance. The event, held annually, offers attendees an opportunity to share research and engage members of Congress in discussions on suicide prevention. At the Advocacy Forum, I had the opportunity to use my story as both a researcher and a suicide loss survivor to advocate for suicide prevention and mental health legislation at the national level, on behalf of the AFSP Michigan Chapter. Together with over 250 fellow advocates, we arrived in Washington, D.C. for an incredible, empowering experience.

I was able to tell my story and advocate for change, and in doing so, get the full attention of our Congressional members. Shortly after my return to Lansing, I received a call from Representative Mike Bishop’s (R MI-08) office thanking me for meeting with his legislative aide, and informing me the Congressman was now co-sponsoring HR 2345: The National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act, which has now been signed into law.”

Spotlight Story: Bringing Education to Arkansas

AFSP volunteer Mary Meacham founded the first University of Central Arkansas (UCA) Out of the Darkness Campus Walk in 2011 after the death of her son Kyle. Since then, she has continued to create awareness through her team Miles for Kyle, which has raised over $84,000 for AFSP’s Arkansas chapter.

A semi-retired teacher, Mary serves on the board of the Arkansas chapter, as well as being program chair, and personally leads AFSP education programs such as Talk Saves Lives™, It’s Real, and More Than Sad, as well as the AFSP-endorsed suicide prevention programs safeTALK and ASIST. Since first becoming involved, she has participated in four Out of the DarknessTM Overnight Walks.

This year, Mary worked tirelessly to spread suicide prevention education programming to the entire state.

What first led you to start the first UCA campus walk, and get involved in AFSP?

My son, Kyle, died by suicide on March 2, 2010. There truly are not words to describe the devastation our family felt. We were left asking ourselves how our loved and cherished child, with all his gifts, could have felt so hopeless and in pain that the only way he felt he could stop it was to end his life.

I desperately needed to see and talk to another mother who had lost a child to suicide, but I didn’t yet know of any way to connect with anyone else who shared that experience. As I began trying to process my grief, I read everything I could about suicide, and stumbled upon the website for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I attended AFSP’s Survivor Day event in Little Rock, Arkansas in November of 2010. There, I met a few volunteers, but mainly focused on the documentary they showed, which featured other suicide loss survivors. The people on screen seemed to be reading my mind as they spoke about their own loss.

Now that I realized I was not alone, I read about AFSP’s Out of the Darkness WalksTM. This planted the seed that ultimately led to my getting involved in my local chapter, and in 2011, helping to organize the first Out of the Darkness Campus Walk in Arkansas, at the University of Central Arkansas.

You’ve accomplished a great deal this past year in terms of bringing AFSP education programs to your state. Are there any specific challenges you feel your community faces in terms of suicide prevention?

Because Arkansas is a very rural state, it has been a challenge providing AFSP’s programs and services to all areas. As a board member, it is a personal goal of mine to build a trained group of volunteers representing all parts of Arkansas who are able to bring AFSP’s resources to their own communities. I am happy to say we have had a record year for providing suicide prevention education to Arkansans. To date, our chapter has held 138 events, providing suicide prevention training to over 2,000 people, with more on our calendar before the end of the year.

My fellow AFSP colleagues in Arkansas, Tyler West and Christopher Epperson and I put together a training day to introduce volunteers to our programs, educate them about suicide prevention, and even provide them with guidance on how to organize and deliver our programs themselves. Our plan is to take this training to five different locations in Arkansas each year and build capacity within each region so everyone in Arkansas has access to suicide prevention programs. These training events also help us get to know our volunteers, so we can do a better job of matching them to specific program requests as they come up. Our hope is that the volunteers we train one year can pass along their knowledge to other people, so that they may do the same.

By the end of the year, our chapter will have taken AFSP Programs, or AFSP-endorsed education programming, to every region of our state.

What’s next for your chapter?

We are currently piloting a new project, Lifesaver Schools, that give schools recognition for organizing suicide prevention educational events for students, faculty and staff, and their communities. We got the initial information out any way we could, including mailers, emails, social media, etc., and asked interested schools to register. We then sent out a tool kit of ideas and resources. Schools that meet our requirements for suicide prevention programming will earn an AFSP Arkansas ‘LifeSaver’ school designation, receive a banner, and will be highlighted through our social media channels. Hopefully, we will get some media coverage as well, encouraging more schools to do the same.

Our chapter has had more requests for suicide prevention programs than ever this year. I feel like the seeds we have planted in years past are finally starting to grow!

Spotlight Story: Connecting Students to Support

Jacky Hunt, a psychological counselor at New York Film Academy (NYFA), helped oversee the implementation of our Interactive Screening Program at her school this year, to help connect students in distress to help.

For her, it was personal.

“It’s funny; my family doesn’t talk about suicide much. We probably should, given that my mom made an attempt in 2006. Largely, it doesn’t come up. It’s not that talking about suicide is off the table in my family, but there are things I didn’t know: namely, that my mom had reached out for support and had not felt helped in the time preceding her attempt.”

Spotlight Story: “For You, I Will”

Bubba Randall joined the board of our Louisiana chapter after losing his dear son Jessie to suicide in 2015. Among his many roles, he has been the driving force in bringing our Survivor Outreach Program, which connects trained loss survivors with the recently bereaved, to his state.

On April 7, 2015 we lost our 24-year-old son, Jessie Lee Randall, to suicide. He had struggled with depression, though we hadn’t recognized to what extent at the time. As we tried to cope with our loss, I met someone who told me about the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. She also told me she needed volunteers to help plan the Out of The Darkness Walk taking place that October. I realized this was an opportunity to learn more about suicide by being with other survivors, and at the same time, help the community.

Jessie had a tattoo on his leg that read, “For You, I Will.” I once asked him what it meant. He answered simply, “If you need something done, I will do it.”

This fit Jessie’s personality perfectly. He often went out of his way to help people. It didn’t matter if he knew you for years, or if he had just met you five minutes ago. If you needed help, you could count on him to lend a hand.

After he passed, I thought a lot about his tattoo, and how he lived his life. I decided I wanted to help people, too.

I’m now on the board of AFSP’s Louisiana chapter; I chair the Baton Rouge Out of The DarknessTM Walk; I have traveled to Washington, D.C. to take part in AFSP’s annual Advocacy Forum; and I am the Louisiana coordinator for the Survivor Outreach Program.

AFSP’s Survivor Outreach Program is particularly dear to my heart. I remember when we lost Jessie, a detective with the sheriff’s office told us she was sorry for our loss. She was compassionate, but that was it. That was all she could offer. We didn’t know where to go from there. How could we start to heal?

The Survivor Outreach Program connects trained, longer-term survivors of suicide loss (at least two years or more) with those who are newly bereaved. Our SOP volunteers know firsthand what it’s like to lose a loved one to suicide, and are able to assist those who have just lost someone in finding their own path to healing.

Once I got involved with SOP, I realized sheriff’s departments could be helpful in getting the word out to loss survivors. I approached my local sheriff and offered to give a 30-minute presentation to his office about the program and the benefit it could have to the community. The sheriff liked the idea, and after the presentation, I gave everyone an SOP wallet card, which contains a brief description of the program, with links to further resources and information. I challenged the people there that day to put the card in their uniform pocket and carry it around – just like a badge – every day. They could then give the card to any families who had just lost someone to suicide.

One of the hardest – and most gratifying – SOP visits I’ve ever been on came as a direct result of that presentation. Two weeks later, I received a call from a survivor saying she had gotten my card from a deputy. When I input her address into my map app, it led me to the house directly across the street from my son’s old house, where he had taken his life.

All my memories of the night I lost my son came flooding back the moment I got out of my truck and looked over and saw Jessie’s former house. I wasn’t sure I could go through with the visit.

I then looked down at my wrist. After Jessie’s passing, I had gotten a similar tattoo to Jessie’s, that read, “For You, I Will.” The tattoo also includes a semicolon, rather than a comma. This is a symbol that for many people affected by suicide, indicates the sentence is not yet over. It is a sign to keep going.

I wiped the tears from my eyes, looked down at my wrist, and said out loud, “For you I will, son. I will go in and be your voice.”

One of the reasons I know the Survivor Outreach Program saves lives is that I see the young mother I visited that day from time to time in the grocery store. She tells me that if it hadn’t been for my coming and talking to her, she doesn’t think she would still be here.

My hope for the future is to visit every sheriff’s department throughout Louisiana, meeting and connecting with the local police, and sharing our resources so they may share with the newly bereaved.

Through AFSP, I have gained a family: a group of people who support each other in our lowest times, and share special memories with. I am committed to helping my community and other communities in Louisiana. It is so important to me that everyone knows we are there to support them.

For them, I will.

Spotlight Story: From Mother to Daughter

Ellen Menendez first became involved with AFSP after losing a dear friend to suicide. Her hope was that by educating herself about this leading cause of death, she could equip herself with the knowledge and training to prevent any other friends or family members from losing a loved one to suicide.

She didn’t expect her training to come in handy with her own daughter.

“My involvement with AFSP enabled me to open a dialogue with my 15-year-old daughter when she came to me expressing thoughts of suicide. I knew to ask her if she had a plan, and was able to assess her symptoms of depression. I was able to calmly discuss the warning signs she was experiencing, and provide her primary care doctor with a clear picture of her mental health.”

Since then, Ellen and her daughter have attended AFSP’s annual Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C. together, storming the Hill hand-in-hand to convince representatives on Capitol Hill of the need for smart mental health and suicide prevention legislation throughout the United States.

“Advocacy gives us both the opportunity to be the voice for so many others who no longer have a voice or cannot be a voice for themselves.”

Most recently, Ellen, who serves as the North Florida board chair and Jacksonville walk chair, has been working to bring a suicide support group for children and teens to Jacksonville, after attending a children/teen support group facilitator training herself.

“Only adult support groups are available in my community for loss survivors. Teens and children do not have their own safe space to connect with others their age who are experiencing the same feelings of loss. This connection in a support group helps to normalize the bereavement process.”

“AFSP has brought meaning to such a tremendous loss. It has allowed me the opportunity to raise awareness and support a community in need.”

Spotlight Story: Finding Her Voice For Her Father

“At first, no one wanted to believe that it was a suicide.”

Hannah Jines lost her father, a retired Master Chief who had served in the Navy for 25 years.

“My father’s death was referred to as an accident, but I knew deep down what my father battled. I knew it was suicide.”

Afterwards, Hannah faced her own battle with depression and suicidal thoughts. Eventually, she found a support group for suicide loss survivors through the AFSP website.

Today, as a volunteer Field Ambassador and board chair for the Tampa Bay chapter, Hannah Jines honors her father by speaking out about this health crisis to state and federal representatives on public policy issues. This year, Hannah helped organized AFSP’s Florida State Capitol Day, an event that brings together AFSP volunteers with state and local elected officials, and was part of a bill passing that would cover lost wages for first responders with PTSD. She also works closely with her local legislators year round by attending multiple town halls and meeting individually with local legislators regularly.

Hannah is also a certified safeTALK trainer and has presented many safeTALK trainings along with Talk Saves Lives in her community.

Speaking out about suicide didn’t come naturally to her.

“I felt my heart pounding and my hands shaking,” Jines says of her experience participating in Florida’s State Capitol Day for the first time. “I wasn’t a natural public speaker, and the topic of suicide was still one that was hard for me to talk about. But it was time for me to raise my voice to help make change.

Spotlight Story: Bringing Prevention to the Church

The Rev. Dr. Robert D. Flanagan first became involved with AFSP in 2011 while working as School Minister and Chair of the Theology Department at Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts. The school had lost a recent graduate to suicide. Father Bob quickly recognized the need for bringing suicide prevention education and awareness to the school community.

After serving on the board of our Boston chapter, Father Bob moved to Connecticut in 2013. There, he joined the board and became Lead Ambassador for public policy, chairing the chapter’s annual State Capitol Day, advocating at the State House and attending several of AFSP’s annual Advocacy Forums, proudly wearing his collar to show state legislators and congressional staff and representatives that clergy are focused on suicide prevention.

This year, Father Bob helped AFSP and suicide prevention reach a significant milestone. Working with clergy colleagues in the Episcopal Diocese of New York, he first put forward a suicide prevention training and advocacy resolution at the New York Diocesan Convention, which referred to the 79th General Convention of the Episcopal Church. Thanks to his hard work and support from Episcopal clergy and lay people across the country the resolution passed, with $75,000 allocated to suicide prevention training, the first of its kind for the Episcopal Church. Father Bob is now working with his colleagues to schedule and implement trainings across the country.

“Most clergy have little training and preparation to counsel individuals struggling with depression and mental illness. They do not know how to access resources and support. By offering suicide prevention training, such as AFSP’s Talk Saves Lives and AFSP chapter-sponsored programs such as LivingWorks’ safeTALK and ASIST, and SoulShop training, clergy will be better equipped to help save lives. With more than 6,900 parishes and more than 1.7 million members of the Episcopal Church in the U.S., the training of its clergy in suicide prevention can help thousands of people in times of suicidal distress and crisis.”

Through his enormous dedication to the cause, Father Bob continues to ensure that many people will have access to understanding and support when they and those in their community need it most.

Spotlight Story: Transforming Loss into Action

Linda Fehrmann, who lost her son Joel to suicide, is president of AFSP’s Eastern Missouri Chapter. She serves as her chapter’s advocacy committee chair and is often called on to testify in support of state legislation that would further AFSP’s public policy priorities, such as suicide prevention legislation for schools, and requirements for suicide prevention training for mental health professionals. This year, she worked with State Senator Jill Schupp and State Representative Marsha Haefner to pass HB 1719, which requires certain mental health professionals to complete two hours of suicide prevention training as a condition of licensure.

In addition to these duties, she is survivor outreach coordinator for her chapter, making sure that suicide loss survivors in the area get the support they need through the Survivor Outreach Program.

“I became a ‘survivor of suicide loss’ in 2000 when I lost my 23-year-old son, Joel, to suicide. At the time, I didn't know how I could be called a ‘survivor,’ when I wasn't so sure I would survive. Today, I lead a support group for parents who have lost a child to suicide. It is humbling and heartbreaking to sit with these parents in their pain. I advocate in the hope that we can save lives and fewer parents will have to experience this devastating loss.”

Linda has also worked tirelessly this past year speaking at community events about suicide prevention and firearms, and working with local organizations on AFSP’s Firearms and Suicide Prevention program with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which supplies lifesaving education to firearms-owners through retailers and shooting ranges.

“My son died by firearm, so I found that approaching shooting ranges and providing resource tables at gun shows really forced me to step outside of my comfort zone,” Linda reflects. “But it also allowed me to grow tremendously as an advocate, as well as in my own healing journey. I am proud to be part of AFSP’s Eastern Missouri chapter, and proud to work to honor the memory of my son.”

Spotlight Story: Educating Gun Owners About Firearms Safety

Greg Reuss is a retired Marine who has lost fellow Marines to suicide. In support of the cause, he walked together with his son Paul through the rain for the 2015 Boston Out of the DarknessTM Overnight Walk.

Several months later, Paul took his life with a firearm.

Now a member of the board of our Maryland chapter, Greg has made it his mission to educate people about suicide prevention and firearm safety.

What prompted you to first get involved with AFSP, and to have your son join you on the Overnight Walk?

I lost a Marine to suicide in 2005. Johnny left behind a family, many friends and fellow Marines. I started volunteering with AFSP in 2014 to learn more about suicide – and how to prevent it. My son, Paul, knew Johnny as well. As a Father’s Day gift in June of 2015, Paul flew to Boston and surprised me by informing me he had registered to walk with me in honor of the fellow Marine I had lost. Together, Paul and I proudly participated in the 2015 Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk. In August of 2015 my son died by suicide.

Paul and I had discussed suicide before. He had acknowledged he’d previously thought of suicide himself. However, he had confirmed he was doing fine and had stated, “I would never do that to you and mom.” I was not aware my son owned a firearm, until his death. I am dedicated to supporting AFSP’s mission, “to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide,” and in particular to support AFSP’s Talk Saves Lives: Firearms and Suicide Prevention program.

Is there anything specific to military culture you’d like to see changed when it comes to suicide prevention?

I had the privilege to serve on active duty for 30 years, and I am proud of the progress that has been made in mental health care and suicide prevention over the years. We still have more work to be done.

Vigilant leadership, an engaged chain of command, sensitized and proactive peer support, and access to health care are all positive factors available to our service members. That said, there can still be reluctance for someone in uniform struggling with mental health to ask for help. Folks often don’t want to be perceived as being weak or as letting their unit down. Sometimes, people may be concerned about jeopardizing their job status or losing their security clearance. Neither of these worries are well-founded, nor should they ever preclude someone from reaching out for help.

Enhanced suicide prevention education messaging and increased awareness regarding available resources, within the military community and “outside the fence,” are essential for our caregivers, our active duty folks, veterans, and family members. I am encouraged by AFSP’s efforts in this regard, and in particular, by our ongoing collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (the V.A.) and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

Tell us about your efforts this past year in bringing suicide prevention education to the firearms community in Maryland.

Approximately 70 percent of military suicide deaths result from a firearm. Working in collaboration with the St. Mary’s Health Department, I have introduced local audiences to AFSP’s Project 2025 initiative, addressed lethal means access, and shared AFSP’s Firearms and Suicide Prevention brochures with retailers for them to display and distribute. I’ve also over the last year had the opportunity, along with others, to bring several of AFSP’s suicide prevention education programs, including Talk Saves Lives, It’s Real: College Students and Mental Health, and More Than Sad, to many of our Maryland communities.

Starting last year, the county sheriff’s department in Leonardtown, Maryland has been distributing our Firearms and Suicide Prevention brochures when returning firearms to their respective owners. Additionally, I have given Talk Saves Lives: Firearms and Suicide Prevention presentations to local shooting ranges and District EMS personnel. I have also been afforded the opportunity to present our Talk Saves Lives: Firearms and Suicide Prevention program at community veterans’ resource fairs, and to active duty and retired personnel at Naval Air Station, Patuxent River.

Over the last year, our firearms and suicide prevention messaging has reached over 1,000 folks throughout Southern Maryland. Later this month, other volunteers and I will be at a table, sharing suicide prevention information at Timonium Gun Show, which is one of Maryland’s premier gun shows.

I am encouraged by the progress we have made to date, and motivated to do more moving forward. Semper Fidelis!

Spotlight Story: An AFSP Love Story

Ali Walker, current board chair of the National Capital Area chapter, recently became engaged to former board member and education chair Chris Naso, who lost his mother to suicide. Ali, who lost a close personal friend to suicide in high school, has worked tirelessly this past year to organize and rebuild the chapter after a brief transitional period, recruiting new volunteers, leading and motivating the board, developing a chapter database, building committees and identifying potential leaders, and setting up new policies and procedures.

As a result, the chapter has seen an increase in new volunteer applications, gained more than 300 new Facebook followers, added three new locations for this year’s local Survivor Day events, and developed a new Youth Engagement committee, which has established AFSP’s first college chapter in the DC area.

Ali met Chris when she started volunteering with the chapter.

Chris proposed to Ali with his late mother’s ring. “I never would have thought something as painful as losing someone to suicide could lead to something so beautiful. Meeting Ali through AFSP, and sharing our experiences together, personifies the message AFSP strives to communicate every day: ‘You are not alone.’ And we are not alone. I treasure that my mother’s memory continues to live on in our lives. I also treasure that Ali and I are able to share this message of hope with all those who face life’s difficulties.”
