Be advised that this video contains discussion about suicide.
Colorado's suicide rate is one of the highest in the nation. At the recent Out of the Darkness Walk, we heard stories from about loss from siblings, parents, friends, and more. The Walk raises funds to provide the community with resources and support for anyone who has dealt with loss or is struggling with mental health. It's also a place to remember and honor the memory of those no longer with us.
Andrea lost her twin brother, Tony, but still talks to him every day and uses her platform to help others.
Kristine lost her grandson and continues to deal with that loss every day, but urges anyone who is struggling to reach out and find someone to talk with.
Kari lost her brother and has dedicated herself to raising awareness and learning the best way to help anyone in need.
If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide: Call 988 Call Colorado Crisis Services at 844-493-8255 or Text 'Talk' to 38255.
