Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership has been fighting diligently, since 1993, to unite our community in the mission of preventing suicide. It hasn’t always been easy but all of us involved know just how great and important our mission is. In the face of adversity, we promise to fight harder. As the saying goes, nothing worth fighting for comes easy. This fight IS worth it.
