 The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national 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. Funds raised through the Las Vegas Wranglers will help create a local AFSP Chapter and ensure that suicide prevention is a priority in the state of Nevada. Our goal is to bring together people across communities and backgrounds to understand and prevent suicide, and to help heal the pain it causes. Individuals, families, and communities who have been personally touched by suicide are the moving force behind everything we do.

Take 5 to Save Lives on World Suicide Prevention Day

Take 5 to Save Lives on World Suicide Prevention Day

AFSP, as part of the National Council for Suicide Prevention, is spreading the word about World Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10 and Take 5 to Save Lives, a new public awareness and education campaign that encourages everyone to take five minutes to help prevent suicide.

By taking five minutes to get involved and become informed, you will be part of a national movement to save lives.

The campaign asks supporters to take five steps:

  1. Learn the warning signs for suicide
  2. Join the online movement to prevent suicide
  3. Spread the word
  4. Support a friend
  5. Reach out if you need help

AFSP is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to spread the word about World Suicide Prevention Day and lend their support. For more information, go to

In addition, the NCSP along with federal agencies will be announcing the formation of an Action Alliance to Prevent Suicide on Sept. 10 from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. A press conference has been scheduled to recognize World Suicide Prevention Day and lay the foundation for a national suicide prevention effort through this partnership.

World Suicide Prevention Day is sponsored by the International Association for Suicide Prevention and the World Health Organization. Click here to learn more.
