The Virtual Overnight

On behalf of all of us at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, our thoughts are with you and your loved ones during the COVID-19 outbreak. Through our close-knit AFSP family in communities across the country, we will get through this together. You are not alone.

The safety and health of our community is our top priority. Therefore, with your well-being in mind, we have decided not to host an in-person Overnight Walk on June 20.

In keeping with the magic of The Overnight, we will be hosting the first Virtual Overnight this June to continue to honor loved ones we've lost to suicide and to support those who are struggling. We will stay connected during this time and lift each other up, just as we would have done in person.

Why We Participate

The Overnight is an experience like no other.

As you virtually participate, you'll feel safe and cared-for in a community where everyone supports each other. It's a place to laugh, to cry, and to heal - to honor the past and embrace a future that your work will change for the better.

Suicide prevention does not get anywhere near the funding given to other leading causes of death. It's up to supporters like us to make a difference. Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life.

We invite you to browse Our Brave Space and COVID-19 resources we put together for you. You can also read our Frequently Asked Questions and AFSP's response to COVID-19.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

We are the leader in the fight against suicide. We fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. Led by CEO Robert Gebbia and headquartered in New York, AFSP has local chapters in all 50 states and events nationwide.

Thanks to supporters like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
