AG Coffman to put $2.8 million toward mental health for youth


There’s a new push to stop youth suicide. Attorney General Cynthia Coffman announced a new collaboration on Tuesday with hospitals and nonprofit groups to increase mental health treatment for kids. The AG’s office will put $2.8 million toward Partners for Children’s Mental Health. Suicide is the leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 24 and Colorado has the ninth highest suicide rate in the country. Coffman says its not lack of caring, its lack of resources, so her office is trying to head off the problem.
