Depression is treatable
We envision a community where:
- There is no stigma about depression
- We can identify depression early.
- Seeking help is viewed as a sign of strength.
- Suicide is never considered a solution.
We are heartbroken alongside our community in the wake of the tragedy that took place at the Table Mesa King Soopers on Monday, Mar. 22. We recognize that many people are deeply affected by this event, and we want to provide resources for anyone who may be struggling right now. Please seek help for yourself and your loved ones as we navigate this very difficult time together, and remember that you are not alone.
