The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national and not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

The Lehigh Valley Chapter has the following support groups for survivors of suicide:

The Clinician Led Support Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at Family Answers; 7 – 8 pm

The International Survivors of Suicide Day is held locally on the third Saturday of November each year at Lehigh Valley Health Network Muhlenberg Campus. The annual program features survivors of suicide loss who tell their stories and share the things that have helped them to cope. Experts explain the basics of what we currently know about suicide and grief. Sharing sessions, local speakers, and healing activities are also offered.

The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is held each year on the second Sunday of October in the Lehigh Parkway. The walk raises money for AFSP’s vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, advocate for mental health issues, and assist survivors of suicide loss.
