Every Donation Makes a Difference in Suicide Awareness & Prevention

/ 150


The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) is the world’s largest and nation’s oldest membership-based suicide prevention organization. Founded in 1968 by Edwin S. Shneidman, PhD, AAS promotes the research of suicide and its prevention, public awareness programs, public education and training for professionals and volunteers.

This year, more than any other in the last decade or so, we are seeing the importance of not only talking about mental health and suicide prevention but the value of comprehensive, research-supported innovative training and education. At AAS, we are continuing that conversation by working to update our training materials, developing new resources for communities, and shaping our Accreditation, Training, and Certification (ATC) program.

AAS is working on the leading edge of suicide prevention and taking a public health approach to address suicide as a public health concern at a scale appropriate for the problem. Your donations will help to fund our programming throughout the year, keeping our community ahead of the curve, and building skills to support their impactful work. Your gift – in any amount - supports AAS as we provide training, education and information to researchers, clinicians and survivors working in the field of suicidology.
