Support Colorado Youth
by Second Wind Fund
Fundraiser launched on July 14, 2021 by Jeffery
Please join Learning Forward in supporting Second Wind Fund, an organization devoted to decreasing the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing financial and social barriers to treatment.

Suicide is currently the leading cause of death for youth ages 10 to 24 in Colorado. Over the past three years, Colorado's teen suicide rate increased 58%, the highest increase of any state in the country. In 2019, nearly half of youth ages 3 to 17 in Colorado didn't receive needed mental health treatment or counseling. Financial barriers are commonly cited as factors associated with lack of access to mental health treatment.

Second Wind Fund believes that every child and youth at risk of suicide should have access to the mental health treatment they need. They match children and youth at risk for suicide with licensed therapists in their communities. If a financial or social barrier to treatment is present, they pay for up to 12 sessions of therapy from one of their specialized network providers. Their unique program helps referred youth discover hope and healing in their lives.

Consider making a contribution of any amount to support Second Wind Fund. Thank you!
