AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION
We are the largest private funder of suicide prevention research
AFSP began as a research organization dedicated to finding the best ways to prevent suicide, and thanks to donors like you we’ve been able to fund millions in research across multiple scientific disciplines.
We fund studies across multiple disciplines at all levels of investigation.
AFSP's Research Grants support studies that will increase our understanding of suicide or test treatments and other interventions that save lives.

AFSP Suicide Research Grants support studies aimed at increasing our understanding of the causes of suicide and factors related to suicide risk, or that test treatments and other interventions designed to prevent suicide. At least one suicide outcome measure must be included in all grant projects. We also consider studies of treatment feasibility, and studies that add a suicide component (e.g., population or treatment) to an existing grant in another area.
AFSP grants are awarded for 2-year periods with the exception of Pilot Research Grants and Focus Grants.
Investigators from all academic disciplines are eligible to apply, and both basic science and applied research projects will be considered, provided that the proposed study has an essential focus on suicide or suicide prevention.
