Toll Free Help Line
The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Eagle Valley is a group of individuals throughout Eagle County who are dedicated to providing suicide prevention education and resources for those in need. Our goals include reducing the number of suicides in our county, providing educational resources in our schools and community organizations, and to provide a comprehensive site for community resources
To prevent suicide in Eagle County by providing education, training, and hope.
The Coalition consists of a volunteer group of concerned community members from a wide array of organizations (including law enforcement, not for profit agencies, mental health providers, first responders, school representatives, etc.) who recognize the critical problem of suicide prevention. Through the work of our volunteers we have been able to provide ASIST, safeTALK, QPR, and SOS (Signs of Suicide) training all focused on suicide prevention to our community, helping us to train over 550 adults and 2,000 students, since September 2009.
Our team has a passion and commitment to reduce the number of suicides in our valley, educate our community and continue to build SpeakUp ReachOut. We are dedicated to implementing prevention programs in our schools and community organizations. We are currently funded by grants and we are working towards becoming a self-sustaining non-profit organization (501c3 status).
The suicide rate in Eagle County is nearly twice that of the United States rate since 2000 and there is more work that needs to be done. We welcome any donations to help us in our continued efforts to expand and continue our suicide awareness prevention and education efforts.
Our group was originally founded at the end of 2009 in response to a need in our community. A small group of organizations got together to form a coalition to prevent suicide and since then our group has grown to include many organizations and concerned community members.
As we continue to expand our organization crisis intervention and counseling services for those who cannot afford it are a priority. We help our community with resources and postvention suicide efforts for those who attempt to take their own lives or for those who lose a family member, friend or someone they care about to suicide.
What motivates all of our volunteers varies greatly. Some are driven by the loss of someone to suicide, but refuse to be silenced. Some are driving by personal struggles and stories, while others are driven by taking pride in maintaining an open and collaborative culture in order to address our community wide suicide problem at all levels. We are focused on preventing the heartbreaking loss of a life that doesn’t need to end short. By setting high standards, we are dedicated to the continued growth of SpeakUp ReachOut.
