We also have free Grief Support Groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide.
R.A.P.P. Raising Awareness of Personal Power– a free school-based education and prevention program offered to middle and high schools in Larimer County. We currently reach over 4,000 students each year.
H.F.T. Hope for Today– with a strong history of community appeal, Hope for Today is a free community education program available to any group seeking to understand more about suicide, as well as ways to intervene and save a life. This program is presented to college students, faith communities, businesses, and law enforcement each year. Each presentation can be customized for your organization.
The stigma surrounding suicide can isolate families. We offer a free facilitator-led peer support group, You’re Not Alone Grief Support Group, in partnership with 3Hopeful Hearts to provide a safe space for families who have experienced the death of a child by suicide.
