AFSP Kentucky focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide through four main focuses. They work to put on innovative prevention programs, educate the public about risk factors and warning signs, raise funds for research and programs, and support families who have lost someone to suicide.
WHAS11's Hayley Minogue grew closer to the AFSP mission through her reporting on mental health and suicide in our community. She nominated them for the grant and was thrilled to hear they'd been selected as recipients.
This check puts them closer to their end-of-year goal of $200,000, but they aren't there yet. There's about a $30,000 gap in funding they hope the state can rally together to raise. If you would like to donate, you can click this link.
