Did you know that Colorado had the 9th highest rate of suicide in the NATION in 2017 

striking 3 people each day? Approximately 90% of people who die by 

suicide experience a debilitating mental illness at the time of their demise. 

People who have suicidal thoughts are often so overwhelmed by feelings of sadness and 

hopelessness that they truly believe they have no other options but to end their own lives. 

In addition, the stigma associated with mental illness can increase those feelings of overwhelm and despair.

 

NAMI Colorado is working its signature programs such as “In Our Own Voice”, “Family to Family”, "Connections", and 

“Ending the Silence” to combat stigma and bring mental illness out into the open so we can help 

reverse this epidemic. Knowledge is power, and by empowering the population of Colorado, people 

can get the help they need and not feel ashamed about having to struggle 

with mental illness alone and in the dark. Won’t you help NAMI Colorado continue its efforts 

to put an end to stigma by sponsoring the NAMIWalks event on May 18, 2019?
