Africa Project Against Suicide

STAY ALIVE AFRICA

Networking of the African people in conferences & concerts

The Africa Project Against Suicide (APAS) is an African based suicide prevention initiative, officially unveiled in the city of Polokwane, South Africa in 2018 with functional national and regional branches spread across nations of Africa (currently Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Benin Republic, Botswana, Zimbabwe, DR Congo, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Eswatini, United Kingdom, Gambia, Uganda, Malawi), established to alert African citizens and governments about the looming epidemic of suicide and also generate systematic interventions. As we speak, suicide continues to be a public health burden to our society and continent.

VISION

We have a vision to create a safer African continent free of suicide.

MISSION

We have a vision to mobilize human and capital resources, to collaborate with relevant stakeholders, manage partnerships to reduce cases of suicide and provide support to those affected by it, through public campaigns, training, mentoring, economic empowerment and research.

OUR AIMS

  • To provide help and support to individuals vulnerable to suicide, suicidal behaviours and ill-mental health.
  • To eradicate discrimination around suicide and ill-mental health.
  • To educate the general public about the dangers of substance abuse.
  • To initiate partnerships with community, religious, business and education leaders to establish emotional support programs in the workplace, worship centres and schools, accessible to members of staff, worshippers and students respectively.
  • To spread songs of hope through charity music concerts in selected cities of Africa.
