*Organizational membership is a great way to get the entire company, crisis center, or coalition involved with all that AAS has to offer in suicide prevention and research.

Organizational memberships provide member benefits to the employees of the company/organization, crisis center, or coalition. All qualifying employees must register under the organizational name for membership discounts in training, conferences, and products. Volunteers may also be included in the organizational membership, but must submit a letter of service from the organization. Individual memberships are also available for those who do not qualify for recognition under the organizational membership.
