Kathy Valentine - HOPE Coalition of Boulder County
The HOPE Coalition is a grassroots organization that addresses the stigma around depression and suicide. Jan Hittelman was one of the founding members. We offer free events for the community and often have partnered with BPS on our annual HOPE event. This presentation is especially for youth and parents on determining warning signs and risk factors for depression/suicide. Also, therapists from BPS have presented at our annual Gatekeeper's event. Having BPS as a resource for the HOPE Coalition as well as for the entire community is truly a blessing.
