WHAT IS SPCC?
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.
Bridging the Divide 2016
The 2016 Bridging the Divide (BtD) Suicide Awareness and Prevention Summit was held on May 5-6, 2016 was held at the Regis University Lowell Campus in Denver. The theme this year was "Pathways to Resiliency, Strength and Recovery," and more than 150 citizen advocates, educators, medical and mental health professionals, and suicide prevention advocates, gathered for 1.5 days of programming including keynote speakers, Dr. Alex Crosby (CDC), Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas (Carson J Spencer Foundation), and Dr. Michael Kral (Wayne State University).

Our February 22 event at Beau Jo's was a great success. 33 friends of SPCC (both new and old) attended, and we raised $2,022 net income to help in suicide prevention efforts across the state.
