If you or someone you know needs help now,



The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Colorado (SPCC) was formed in 1999, when concerned citizens set out to create a statewide agency with the purpose of preventing suicide and creating a resource network for those who were working to prevent suicide around the state.

Today, SPCC’s membership of concerned agencies, organizations and individuals who are working in the areas of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention has statewide reach.

The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Colorado works statewide to prevent suicide and its impact.

The CDC's Sobering New Statistics

According to a new report, published by the CDC on June 7th, suicide rates have risen in every state but one and suicide is one of only three leading causes of death that is on the rise.

Some of the biggest takeaways from the report are:
- Suicides are rarely because of a single factor
- More than 50% of those who died by suicide did not have a diagnosed mental health condition
- Firearms were the most common method of suicide and that means restriction is one of the best methods to keep loved ones safe

The CDC has urged everyone to learn the signs and what to do if you believe someone is at risk of suicide.

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1(800)273-8255 or Colorado Crisis Services at 1(844)493-TALK (8255).

If you know someone who may be in need of substance abuse treatment, you can call the SAMHSA help line at 1(800)622-HELP (4357) or locate a treatment center on their website.
