Colorado teen suicide rate is nearly twice the national average.   Out of every 100,000 teenagers in the United States who are 15 to 19 years old, 8.9 commit suicide.

In Colorado, that number nearly doubles to 17.6, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We need to take all the steps possible to prevent and halt this epidemic.  We have created Leanin.Team and neighboring communities are asking to scale our program.


We have 12 therapists that donate their time to our program.  Most therapists volunteer every other week or once a month.  If a student needs a higher level of care they need the SAME therapist every week.  We will be seeking grant funding but turning to gofundme to raise money immediately to pay therapists and seed funding to properly launch the program.
 
Our purpose is to encourage students to participate in sessions devoted to personal or group discussions on the full range of mental health issues. These may address personal issues or school and group matters and may vary from basic social and emotional concerns to depression and suicide. We also seek to open healthy discussions among students and parents and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Our goal is to offer a convenient, free and confidential means for obtaining these services.

We feel that it is of utmost importance to address the seriousness of mental health, reducing its stigma and providing healthy education and awareness, as well as open convenient resources to any and all that would like to benefit from them. Any and all help from our caring individuals is greatly appreciated!
