The Illinois Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide through education, research, outreach, and advocacy.

The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide.

As a part of AFSP’s growing nationwide network of chapters, we bring together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter.

Advocates

Erika’s Lighthouse works with schools to deliver quality school mental health programming. The organization accomplishes this through its four pillars: Classroom Education, Teen Empowerment, Family Engagement, and School Policy & Staff Development. Our programs are designed to impact every child in the school and allow educators to empower students with an introduction to mental health, help-seeking, and good mental health. Our programs use diverse teen voices to spread awareness and reduce stigma. Through depression-literacy, stigma reduction, and promoting help-seeking behavior, our programs are designed to promote good mental health and the early identification and intervention of youth mental health issues. In the 2021-22 school year, we have reached over 300,000 students around the country.
