Colorado had the highest increase, 58%, in the rate of teen suicides in the United States since 2016, 58%. Suicide is now the cause of one in five adolescent deaths in teens ages 15-19. These new numbers make us the sixth worse state in the nation. Please join us so we can learn how to better identify issues and help our children.
