We encourage you to take this opportunity to expand your outreach and connect with a captive local market who are already interested in the benefits of activities, products and information that support a healthy mind.

Did you know: One in five people seek mental health care in a given year.
Did you know that only about 40% of people who need mental health care seek it out?
That means that even more people need help but cannot get it or do not even know what options are available. Supporting Action for Mental Health is changing the way our community experiences mental health, with classes and conversations that offer real, usable skills and decrease stigma. This September we are presenting events throughout the month to increase awareness that there are tools available to everyone in the community to support those experiencing mental illness. Would you be interested in finding out how you can be a part of our efforts?
The facts are telling, suicide is a public health epidemic, and the research shows one of the most effect solutions is all around us, our community members, actively engaged in creating mental wellness. Supporting Action for Mental Health (SAM) is a community-based program focused on filling everyone’s Mental Wellness Toolbox with effective tools that make a difference.
September is International Suicide Prevention Month. In Colorado in 2017, 1,175 people died by suicide, and it is the leading cause of death among our youth (aged 10 – 24). There has been a fourfold increase in youth suicide in Colorado the past eight years. We all must step up and take action to address this epidemic.
Supporting Action for Mental Health is taking the month to raise awareness about mental health and provide residents with a variety of tools that can help improve mental wellness.
Did you know that there has been a fourfold increase in youth suicides over the past 8 years
It is now the leading cause of death among 10 to 24 year-olds? These numbers only speak to those who died by suicide, there are so many struggling with mental health related issues that don’t get the help they need because of stigma, lack of resources or they just don’t know healing is possible.
Supporting Action for Mental Health is changing that by empowering individuals in the community with tools they can use to be a support for people with suicidal thoughts or mental health issues. We need your help to make this program a success. This September we are presenting events throughout the month to increase awareness of tools available to everyone in the community to support those experiencing mental illness.
