This 2002 report identifies the characteristics of people who are most at risk of committing suicide, existing suicide-prevention resources and gaps that need to be addressed. This comprehensive compilation of data shows that an estimated 9,600 Coloradans seriously contemplate suicide each year—the majority of whom do not receive treatment for their suicidal symptoms—and that, in any given year, about 600 Coloradans can be expected to die by suicide.
