Funding Opportunity: Office of Suicide Prevention

The Office of Suicide Prevention of the Prevention Services Division is pleased to announce the release of the fiscal year 2012-2013 community grant request for applications. 

This one-year grant project will fund communities throughout Colorado  to implement suicide prevention and intervention strategies targeting working age men in their communities. 

Each year in Colorado, men ages 25 to 54 account for the highest number of suicide deaths, and in 2010 working age men had the highest suicide rate of any other age group. This one-year project will support the training of men and community members in suicide prevention and intervention strategies, and will disseminate an education and awareness campaign that specifically targets men community-wide. 

Applications are due to the Office of Suicide Prevention no later than 3pm on April 27.
