Make sure you and yours are protected

People campaigned to get rid of measles once, and it worked, effectively eliminating the disease by 2000. Now it’s back.

We might not have a cool van this time around, but we’ve got to get this under control. Make sure you and yours are protected by getting vaccinated.


Traveling? Make Sure You’re Vaccinated

If you’re traveling abroad or to domestic areas hit by measles outbreaks, make sure you and yours are vaccinated. Aren’t sure if you’re previous vaccinations still protect you? We’ve got all sorts of helpful information.

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

AFSP Colorado Chapter

As a part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP)’s growing nationwide network of chapters, the AFSP Colorado Chapter brings together people from all backgrounds who want to prevent suicide in our communities. Families and friends who have lost someone to suicide, vulnerable individuals, mental health professionals, clergy, educators, students, community/business leaders, and many others energize our chapter. The grassroots work we do focuses on eliminating the loss of life from suicide by: delivering innovative prevention programs, educating the public about risk factors and warning signs, raising funds for suicide research and programs, and reaching out to those individuals who have lost someone to suicide. The Chapter hosts a wide variety of events across Colorado throughout the year. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO VIST OUR EVENTS PAGE  to get involved and learn more.
