RAPP is a free suicide prevention program available to all middle and high school students in Larimer County. Since 1992 The Alliance for Suicide Prevention of Larimer County’s RAPP program has been training youth on the signs and symptoms of someone who may need mental health support and the resources available in their homes, schools, and community.
RAPP reaches approximately 4,000 students a school year with over 90% of students reporting an increase in knowledge of mental health issues and suicidal symptoms, a higher likelihood for help-seeking behavior for themselves or for someone else, and an increased awareness of the resources available to them. We achieve this by using a comprehensive approach through education, support, skill building, and increasing social connectedness.
RAPP is a program with evidence of effectiveness and uses strategic practices to specifically address the youth population. We offer to work with your school to personalize our presentation to best meet the needs of your unique students.
