2022 Lifesaver Leadership Award Recipient

This year the AFSP Massachusetts Chapter is excited to honor Harvard University’s Dr. Matthew Nock, a pioneer in the field of suicide research.

Dr. Nock’s research is aimed at advancing the understanding of why people behave in ways that are harmful to themselves, with an emphasis on suicide and other forms of self-harm. His research is multi-disciplinary in nature and uses a range of methodological approaches (e.g., epidemiologic surveys, laboratory-based experiments, and clinic-based studies) to better understand how these behaviors develop, how to predict them, and how to prevent their occurrence.

Dr. Nock was AFSP’s first million-dollar research grant recipient. His work has since been funded by the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, US Army, and private foundations, and has been published in over 100 scientific papers and book chapters.

The proceeds from A Sip in the Park benefit both local and national lifesaving initiatives. Follow the link below to donate online as well as to buy tickets and view our auction when available.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading nonprofit dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. The proceeds from A Sip in the Park benefit the AFSP Massachusetts Chapter, enabling them to continue work across the state.
