Every year since our start in 1962, San Francisco Suicide Prevention has answered thousands of calls from people in crisis while providing emotional encouragement, education, assistance, and intervention to those in search of compassion and a listening ear. To ensure we can continue to offer these crucial programs free of charge, we host Laughs for Life. This event brings supporters together to celebrate our positive impact in the community.
Join us for an evening of adult comedy and community on September 9. This virtual experience provides the option of enjoying happy hour tapas/cocktails along with local performances in the comfort of your own space.

Since launching our Crisis Line nearly sixty years ago, we have expanded our services to numerous branches of support including an HIV nightline, drug and relapse lines, grief and survivor programs, youth risk reduction and training, and community outreach.
San Francisco Suicide Prevention is a vital service that provides support—and perhaps even more importantly—a sense of hope for our community. By continuing important conversations about mental health and suicide, we can help de-stigmatize asking for help when in crisis. Laughs for Life is a night intended to spread joy and share moments of laughter together.
