Charity Partner, The Second Wind Fund:
The mission of the Second Wind Fund is to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing financial and social barriers to treatment.
Second Wind Fund believes that every child and youth at risk of suicide should have access to the mental health treatment they need. They match children and youth at risk for suicide with licensed therapists in their communities. If a financial or social barrier to treatment is present, the Second Wind Fund pays for up to 12 sessions of therapy from one of their specialized network providers. Their unique program helps referred youth discover hope and healing in their lives.
The youth suicide rate throughout Colorado is alarmingly high. Over the last 19 years, Second Wind Fund has expanded to provide life-saving services to over 7,000 children and teens in communities throughout Colorado. www.Coloradogives.org/m3podcast
