We provide direct peer outreach to communities that are heavily impacted by suicide. We have a dedicated Peer Coordinator for LGBTQ+ Youth.
We prevent suicide in Larimer County through training and education, providing outreach, and offering support.
Colorado consistently ranks in the top ten states for annual deaths by suicide, in Larimer County a suicide occurs every 4-5 days statistically, it is the second leading cause of youth deaths, and more people die by suicide than homicide.
Mental health and suicide are often stigmatized and a lack of education about these topics can leave those who have been affected by it personally or by someone they love feeling isolated, unsure of how to support someone in need, and unaware of the resources in the community available to them.
We strive towards that goal by building an understanding about mental health issues, providing support to those who have lost a loved one, and working together to build a community of peers who can reach out to their families, coworkers, and neighbors when they are in need.
