A Vital Conversation: Suicide Prevention in Eagle County

Thoughts of suicide are surprisingly common. At any given time, around 1 in 25 people is thinking about suicide to some degree.

For most people, thinking about suicide isn't about wanting to die. Instead, it's about tension between their reasons for staying alive and their desire to escape from pain that feels unbearable.

Within this tension lies the risk of death—but also the possibility of intervention, hope, and life. This is where someone with the right skills can help tip the balance and change a life forever.

This is where you come in. Learn how you can save a life and be a part of creating a suicide safer community.

Calling all Volunteers!

Designed for students in grades 6-12, SOS Signs of Suicide for middle and high school teaches students how to identify the signs of depression and suicide in themselves and their peers. Through a video, guided discussion and brief screening for depression, students are encouraged to ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell) when worried about themselves or a friend. SOS takes just one class period and has shown a 64% reduction in self-reported suicide attempts.

Come learn how you can be a part of this life saving education for our kids!!

A Vital Conversation: Protecting Our Kids

Eagle County Community,

Over the last two years our county has experienced more suicide deaths than ever recorded. This loss has been felt by all and we are in a vulnerable place, our most vulnerable are our youngest generation. I just read a recent study that the number of children going to the ER for suicidal ideation and attempts has doubled. 43% of the visits were for kids ages 5-11. AND here is the thing, suicide is the most preventable cause of death. We can make this different for our kids if we know what to look for and how to intervene. THIS NEEDS TO BE A COMMUNITY EFFORT. We cannot afford to have anyone missing from the table. Please join us for this vital conversation and learn how we can make this difference for all our kids.
