Zero Suicide Colorado Learning Collaborative
Every month we hold an interactive online Learning Collaborative for health system leaders working in suicide prevention. Experts in health care-based suicide prevention, advocates who speak on their lived experience, and a diverse array of other guest speakers join health system leaders from across Colorado in discussing state of the art approaches to improving care and saving lives. The next Learning Collaborative will take place on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 10 am via Zoom. To be added to the invite list please email Michael.Lott-Manier@state.co.us.
