Suicide Prevention in
As you may know, suicide is now claiming an average of 18 lives each week in Colorado. In the Denver Metro area alone, more than 12 people a day attempt to kill themselves. Fortunately, most are not completed. [Metro Crisis Line: 888-885-1222]
Metro Crisis Services, a fairly new organization, was created to do something about the problem of suicide and the large numbers of people who have mental health or substance abuse problems but can't get help. If you're unfamiliar with Metro Crisis Services, please learn about them at www.metrocrisisservices.org . Members of the organization would be happy to come talk with individuals, groups or staff, and they work with clergy, also.
