New American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) chapter covering six counties Dutchess, Orange, Ulster, Sullivan, Rockland and Putnam. In 2006 a few moms who lost their teens to suicide got together to reach out to help others learn about the warning signs, its causes and most of all prevention. They started a grassroots suicide awareness walk Here Comes the Sun at a local high school.
