IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A CRISIS, PLEASE CONTACT 1-800-273-TALK (8255) IMMEDIATELY. WE WANT YOU SAFE!

The Douglas Arapahoe Suicide Prevention Alliance (DASPA) was started in 2006 by three local, passionate professionals who were dedicated to reducing suicide in Douglas County. In 2014 we became the Douglas Arapahoe Suicide Prevention Alliance, 100% volunteer based, as we were joined by many organizations that are located in Arapahoe County.

We are an Alliance comprised of organizations representing mental health providers, law enforcement agencies, coroner offices, school districts, fire rescue departments, hospitals, private citizens and faith communities.   DASPA’s mission is to implement comprehensive, community wide initiatives for preventing suicide in Douglas and Arapahoe Counties, Colorado.  Please visit our Members page for more information.

Every year more and more people in Douglas and Arapahoe Counties find themselves in need of support as they care for themselves or loved ones who have attempted suicide or lost a love one to suicide. DASPA is here to help raise awareness and educate our communities.
