About Rise Against Suicide

What we do

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.

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.

WhERE WE SERVE

Rise serves in the geographic areas serviced by Boulder Valley School District and Saint Vrain Valley School District.

Our Company History

In 2002, four students at a Colorado school died by suicide within a nine-month time frame. In response to these four suicides, three local faith communities organized a small community Walk/Run to show solidarity with the school. The funds raised from the event were used to provide direct support to other young people struggling at the school. 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.
