WORKshop Details

In 2018, Weld County lost 59 lives to suicide. Eighty-one percent of these deaths were men. Imagine Zero of Weld County is a suicide coalition, started in August 2018, as a way to bring the many suicide prevention non-profit organizations together to combat suicide in Weld County.

This presentation will address what the coalition does, who all is involved and the priority work that they are doing, that includes addressing adult male suicide, youth suicide and education for all community members.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
