Date grant awarded: August 27, 2019

Step Back is an suicide prevention program for teens and young adults. Located in the beautiful city of Grand Junction, Colorado we offer a place of comfort and hope. The youth can drop-in, hang out or receive services such as mentoring, life-skills training, workshops and referrals. In 2011, our community experience the tragic loss of two teenage brothers to suicide. It was at time we learned that our county was the highest in the nation for teen suicide. Step Back goal is to reduce the rates of teen suicide in our community. We want to give our youth a voice while building social and emotional skills to be leaders in their communities and around the world.
