PPSPP serves our community in the effort to save lives! We provide suicide prevention services at NO COST to the participant. These include free individual therapy, peer support groups, 1:1 peer support, Teen Mentors, Suicide Prevention Trainings and Postvention Services when tragedy occurs. PPSPP also provides suicide loss survivors important opportunities to heal through helping
We know that reducing risk factors and increasing protective factors prevents suicide. 80% of individuals who die by suicide tell someone or give clues of their intentions in the days leading up to their death. The more people in our community who know what to look for and how to respond, the more lives we can save. By providing support services to those suffering and considering suicide, lives will be saved.
PPSPP is in need of art supplies, table top easels, gift cards/certificates for food supplies, new laptop, unlocked Iphone XR or newer, peer support volunteers, and admin support volunteers.
El Paso County leads the state in deaths by suicide with suicide being the 3rd leading cause of death in our community.
“PPSPP helps me to honor my promise to myself to prevent others from experiencing a loss like mine. I lost my son to suicide. PPSPP has been my main support and has given me a way to help others.” — Pete, Volunteer & Program Participant
