Suicide is a public health issue, which means it’s preventable.  And while most young people don't attempt, let alone complete, suicide, it is the second leading cause of death among young people from 15 to 24 in America. KSJD’s Jeff Pope visited with Kelli Jackson and Stephanie Allred about the work of advancing community and individual resilience in preventing suicide.

A free, confidential crisis hotline is available for youth and adults 24 hours per day at 970-247-5245.   

Suicide prevention resources for individuals and institutions can be found here, here and here.
