Suicide Support

Get more info

Suicide – a leading cause of death in the state of Colorado – a stark reality that we can work together to change. Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership has served the Pikes Peak Region since 1993, providing free suicide prevention resources and support services to increase awareness, provide education, and connect individuals and organizations to needed resources. Suicide can be prevented by increasing protective factors and decreasing risk factors. One really important protective factor we can all work on each day is creating connections with one another. Each month, PPSPP puts out a Connections Calendar full of community events where connections can be made, or strengthened, through spending time together doing something fun!

Teen Think Tanks

The Teen Think Tanks were first completed in 2017 by Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership (PPSPP), who was contracted by El Paso County Public Health. In efforts to collect fresh data,PPSPP received funding from El Paso County Public Health through the Center for Disease Control Health Disparities Grant,as one of the funding sources, to conduct the Teen Think Tanks again. The objective of The Teen Think Tanks is to gather data from local youth to help inform community support and prevention strategies.

The Teen Think Tanks were conducted beginning in May of 2022 through May of 2023. Students participated in groups of six or more. Each group of participants was given an anonymous e-survey and participated in a group interview. These group meetings had representation from 19 different high schools in El Paso County across 6 school districts, and three different youth serving organizations. A total of 113 students participated.

Each participant opted in and was required to sign an informed consent form. This form was signed by the participant and the legal guardian of the participant. Additional funding was received that allowed PPSPP to provide incentives for participation through the opportunity to receive a $25 gift card, free fidgets, food and beverages. Participants received these items regardless of the level of their participation during the Teen Think Tank Meeting. Additionally, mental health support was made available during and after Teen Think Tank Meetings.
