American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
HR Florida understands the importance of corporate responsibility and the value of “giving back” to the community. Each year, we select a charity to be highlighted throughout the year, and local chapters across the state participate in special events, some of their own design and some state-wide, to help raise funds for the charity.
HR Florida is excited to partner with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) this year. AFSP’s mission is to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
Established in 1987, AFSP is a voluntary health organization that takes action against this leading cause of death. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health by engaging in the following core strategies:
• Funding scientific research
• Educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention
• Advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention
• Supporting survivors of suicide loss and those affected by suicide
If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.

2nd Annual HR Florida 5K
We all remember it was hot last year, so we took your advice and will be hosting this event starting at 6pm on Sunday August 25, 2019. This year’s event will take place at the beautiful Falcon’s Fire Golf Course located just minutes away from the Gaylord Palms (transportation will be provided).
This is an easy, fun event where participants can walk or run.
(FYI: 5K = 3.1 miles. If you walk a 20-minute mile, it will take just over 1 hour to complete) through a great golf course with amazing scenery.
We encourage you, your friends, and family to participate and fund-raise. (You do not have to attend the conference to participate in the 5K or to donate to this year's charity, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention).
