Nation's Largest Suicide Prevention Organization Awards Over $4 Million in Research Grants

04 Nov 16

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is proud to announce the winners of the annual research grant application process. Of the 193 applications received in November 2015, 17 grantees have been selected to receive from $30,000 to $1.5 million to fund research studies related to suicide prevention.

"By funding innovative, methodically sound, potentially impactful research and building a community of researchers who care about suicide prevention, we know we can make inroads in reducing the suicide rate. Because suicide can be caused by many factors, it's vital to approach the issue from many different angles in our research," said Jill Harkavy-Friedman, AFSP vice president of research. "Having been an AFSP research grantee myself, and a former Scientific Advisor, I know the rigors our applicants go through. I am encouraged to see researchers who are involved with AFSP today remain passionate about suicide prevention – even long after their studies are complete."

Each application is reviewed multiple times by the top suicide prevention researchers in the world. The research grants are funded mainly through individual donors who attend the AFSP walks and other public education events. Many of the AFSP grantees then go on to receive further funding from the National Institute of Mental Health and other large funding agencies.
