Suicide prevention commission

The Suicide Prevention Commission serves as the interface between the public and private sectors in establishing statewide suicide prevention priorities that are data-driven and evidence-based. By focusing on current resources and expanding the network of partnerships across the state, the commission boosts the efforts of Colorado’s Office of Suicide Prevention and makes annual reports to the governor as well as the General Assembly.

How you can get involved in suicide prevention

The public is welcome to attend commission meetings and contact the coordinator for opportunities to be involved in commission efforts.
