About the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Eagle Valley

Who are we?

The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Eagle Valley is a group of individuals throughout Eagle County who are dedicated to providing suicide prevention education and resources for those in need. Our goals include reducing the number of suicides in our county, providing educational resources in our schools and community organizations, and to provide a comprehensive site for community resources

Mission Statement

To prevent suicide in Eagle County by providing education, training, and hope.

Who is our team?

The Coalition consists of a volunteer group of concerned community members from a wide array of organizations (including law enforcement, not for profit agencies, mental health providers, first responders, school representatives, etc.) who recognize the critical problem of suicide prevention. Through the work of our volunteers we provide ASIST, safeTALK, QPR, SOS (Signs of Suicide), and Working Minds training all focused on suicide prevention to our community. We also provide support groups for those with suicidal ideation and for those that have lost a loved one to suicide.

Our team has a passion and commitment to reduce the number of suicides in our valley, educate our community and continue to build SpeakUp ReachOut. We are dedicated to implementing prevention programs in our schools and community organizations. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization currently funded by grants and private donations.

The suicide rate in Eagle County is nearly twice that of the United States rate since 2000 and there is more work that needs to be done. We welcome any donations to help us in our continued efforts to expand and continue our suicide awareness prevention and education efforts.

What are our goals?

Our group was originally founded at the end of 2009 in response to a need in our community. A small group of organizations got together to form a coalition to prevent suicide and since then our group has grown to include many organizations and concerned community members.

What motivates us?

What motivates all of our volunteers varies greatly. Some are driven by the loss of someone to suicide, but refuse to be silenced. Some are driving by personal struggles and stories, while others are driven by taking pride in maintaining an open and collaborative culture in order to address our community wide suicide problem at all levels. We are focused on preventing the heartbreaking loss of a life that doesn’t need to end short. By setting high standards, we are dedicated to the continued growth of SpeakUp ReachOut.
