We are Combine Columbine. We are a social enterprise run by six students attending an entrepreneurship class at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado with a mission to bring attention to the issue of depression by stress in our school. This is a significant stepping stone in mitigating suicide and creating a more unified community. We have identified this as an issue that easily leads to a feeling of being stressed and feeling like there is no hope–factors that contribute to suicide. By working towards ending this problem, we are one of many tools that contribute to the cause of suicide prevention and awareness. Through QPR (Question, Persuade, Respond) training and our Fire Within representative (Jamie Lowther), we have learned how to identify the warning signs of a person who may be considering suicide, how to approach someone suspected of having these thoughts, and where to seek help in these instances. In order to have a strong business that can make a difference; our team evaluated our own individual strengths and thinking styles. We are a team based business, so each member in our team has an equal vote in the direction Combine Columbine goes in. With the equal parts in our business and the power of teamwork, we will make a change in the world and the lives around us.
