Rise Against Suicide is a nonprofit based in Lafayette, Colorado. “Our mission is to help young people at risk of suicide by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment, helping them to find hope and healing. The organization was originally founded as Second Wind Fund of Boulder County in 2009; however its name was changed in 2020 to better reflect what our organization does and strives toward every day.
Rise Against Suicide funds therapy sessions for at-risk youth struggling with suicidal ideation in the geographic areas included in Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District. Young people up to the age of 19 who are experiencing suicidal thoughts and are uninsured or underinsured are eligible for funded counseling services through Rise. The organization receives referrals from private and public elementary, middle, and high schools, community social workers, psychologists and mental health professionals, hospitals, and mental health facilities. Within hours of receiving a request for help, at-risk youth can be connected with qualified, private therapists; this immediate response is unique to Rise Against Suicide.”
