Who we areImagine Zero

Imagine Zero is a coalition of professionals, agencies, and community members who meet to improve communication and coordination of services around suicide prevention. Through our collaboration we strive to build a wider and stronger safety net of suicide prevention resources in Northern Colorado.

What we do

Imagine Zero provides an opportunity to come together to work on community-wide strategies for suicide prevention, learn about resources and projects already existing in Northern Colorado, and discuss ways we can better connect with one another.


Our BeliefCommunity and Connection

We believe that when our agencies come together to weave a true net of care and cooperation, individuals experiencing the despair that precedes suicide will not go unseen and unheard. Someone, somewhere, in our tightly woven net, will notice and know how to respond in a way that builds connection for this individual. Eventually, our community will no longer be one where we puzzle over the excessive suicide rates. Instead, we will be a community of connection, where no individual could possibly fall through our tightly woven net of safety and support.

Guiding Principles

The structure of our group is flexible in order to fit the evolving needs of our partners and the community.

We value transparency, collaboration, and best practices.

We recognize the gift that each of our partners gives to this cause through the time spent in our meetings and the extra work that is taken on in order to provide us with quality presentations or support the group through special projects.

We also recognize the good work that is already being done by many of our partners.

We choose to highlight, support, and synergize with this work rather than duplicate or compete.
