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.

Latest News / Commentary

Speaking the word itself is not the problem.

The silence that so often follows is.

THE S WORD, a feature-length documentary, tackles one of the most unfathomable issues of our time by telling the stories of suicide attempt survivors, along with the families and loved ones of those who have died by suicide - those who are left behind to suffer the anguish, guilt, and confusion of death by suicide. The voices of those living through suicide loss and attempts will be amplified above simple discussion and politics of the issues. This film is bracing, controversial, and surprising in its revelations, its humor, its connections, and its multiple points of view.

Goals of THE S WORD:
- Raise awareness about suicide prevention and resources, including alternatives that reach outside the box.
- Expand the conversation about suicide to include everybody, because we have all been touched by it in some way.
- Talk openly about suicide without judgement, shame or discrimination.
- To get people to think about suicide in a completely different way – highlighting the complexity, pain and even humor of our survivors.
- Change the world. (Okay we know one film can’t change the world but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.)
