Suicide deaths in Colorado have increased almost every year since 2009, reaching a new high of 1,156 in 2016. Colorado that year had the fifth-highest suicide rate in the nation and has been in the top 10 states since 2009.
In El Paso County, the adult suicide rate is higher than the state average. From 2003 through 2017, the county lost to suicide 196 people ages 19-24.
The study cited a weak economy and poor job opportunities as suicide risk factors. Also, focus groups in the counties noted a lack of access to health insurance and social activities.
Christine started this organization to help Individuals gain access to much-needed In-Home Therapy, Crisis Intervention, Life Skills, and Targeted Case Management.
