Suicide Prevention

Recognizing that the complex issue of suicide cannot be solved through behavioral health or medical models alone, CHP became a backbone organization in 2020 to create community infrastructure to create social change.

The Suicide Prevention Collaborative of El Paso County

We envision caring communities that are resilient, connected, and capable of supporting every person, regardless of the struggles they face.
