Our aim is to educate youth about depression and suicide. Our goal is to prevent suicide. Through education, awareness and prevention, we hope those in despair will choose life and live it to the fullest. Depression is treatable and suicide is preventable. We are a peer education group that goes into middle and high school classrooms in Boulder Valley School district to present on warning signs and risk factors of depression and suicide. We also discuss ways to keep yourself and your friends and family healthy.
To help those in despair, Colie’s Closet will provide financial assistance for therapy for depressed or suicidal youth. It is the belief of the Colie’s Closet organization, that emphasis placed on educating teenagers, young adults and others about depression and suicide is key in helping to bring down the suicide rate. Having knowledge about depression, knowing the warning signs of suicide and where to go for help will hopefully assist those who someday may find themselves in a hopeless situation.
The reality is … depression and suicide do not discriminate. They affect all age groups, genders, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, religions, and are nationwide problems.
Colie’s Closet is composed of high school youth working together to further the understanding and treatment of depression and the prevention of suicide.
