In 2000, The Colorado Trust funded the pilot demonstration & evaluation of a youth suicide prevention project in Denver that provided education, screening & treatment amongst diverse youth populations, known as the Colorado LINK Teen Suicide Prevention Project. Its goals were to: 1) mobilize youth-serving settings around suicide prevention; 2) increase access to mental health services among traditionally underserved youth; & 3) reduce suicidal behaviours & underlying risk factors among indicated youth. The results of this effort & the findings of the project evaluation are presented here.
