Be Empowered. Be Engaged. Be A Part of the Community Working to Prevent Suicide.

Four expert-led suicide prevention trainings are available! Please scroll down for course details.

We can prevent future suicides by educating individuals on how to recognize when someone is reaching out for help and how to effectively respond to those invitations.

Why 4,098?

Between 2006-2016, 683 people died by suicide in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. Mental Health Partners’ goal is to train 6 people for every 1 person who died by suicide during this time period. Our hope is that this will create a community of support around those who experience suicidal ideation and for those who complete a training in suicide prevention.
