Navigating the news

June 8th

In light of recent suicides reported in the media, the HCC would like to iterate that suicide is a complicated act. It is usually caused by a mental health issue such as depression, which can impact a person ability to think clearly about their problems and how to solve them. Sometimes these disorders are not identified or noticed; in other cases, a person with a disorder will show obvious symptoms or signs.

One thing is certain: Suicide is preventable. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, help is available.

The Health and Counseling Center offers free crisis services 24/7 for mental health emergencies.

Call 303-871-2205 and ask to speak with the counselor on call.

If you are calling when the center is closed, follow the prompts to be directly connected to an on-call counselor.

You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24/7 at 800-273-TALK for support.
