Suicide Prevention

Suicide is the leading cause of injury death in Colorado and ranks in the top five causes of death for Coloradans ages 10-55. Suicide ranks as the second leading cause of death for all 10-44 year olds in the state and fourth for 45-54 year olds. The suicide rate has increased in Colorado from 16.7 per 100,000 in 2010 to 19.2 per 100,000 in 2014. Young adolescents are particularly vulnerable to self-inflicted injury and as a result, suicide is the leading cause of hospitalizations and death for youth ages 10-14.
