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.

$4.65m Awarded in Grants for Suicide Research

Twenty-seven national and international applicants have been selected to receive more than $4 million in research funding to understand and decrease suicide.

Even though suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, it receives far less funding than other causes. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is working to restore that balance.

“The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has been funding scientific research for the past 30 years. We believe research is critical to leading us to a better understanding of the contributors to suicide and the development of useful approaches to prevent suicide,” said Jill Harkavy-Friedman, AFSP vice president of research. “This year we received an impressive number of novel, high-quality applications.”
