REPLY is a free suicide prevention program available to all middle and high school youth in Larimer County. Since 1992, the Alliance for Suicide Prevention of Larimer County’s youth program has been training youth on the signs and symptoms of someone who may need mental health support. Understanding these signs and symptoms, along with knowing actions to take and available resources, are critical to helping someone who needs mental health support.
REPLY reaches 4,000-8,000 students each 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 someone else, and an increased awareness of available resources. We achieve this by using a comprehensive approach through education, support, skill building, and increasing social connectedness.
REPLY is a program with evidence of effectiveness and uses strategic practices to specifically address the youth population. We offer to work with your organization to personalize our program to best meet the needs of your unique students or youth group.
