A State of Emergency Throughout the Country:
Earlier this year, Children’s Hospital Colorado declared a mental health state of emergency for pediatric mental health in Colorado as suicide attempts and emergency room visits for children and youth are rising. This was the first time ever in the Hospital's over 100-year history that a state of emergency was declared. Colorado is not alone in experiencing this mental health crises. Now is the time to learn more and get involved with The Kempe Foundation.
