We want to provide the tools needed to help these individuals and improve their lives. Through the sale of our products, we will put the money raised toward suicide prevention efforts.
It’s not often business professionals are able to take time out of their busy schedules to interact with students at their local high schools. However, that is exactly what happened when Dr. Glenn Most and Cara Lazansky, from Exempla West Pines Behavioral Health, attended a special ribbon-cutting ceremony that launched the relationship between their organization and Columbine High School (CHS).
West Pines has sponsored this class of leaders, enabling them to participate in the year-long program “The FIRE Within.” The FIRE Within is a high school program offered by the Carson J Spencer Foundation in partnership with Junior Achievement and the Second Wind Fund and is geared toward bringing awareness and prevention to suicide through innovation and social entrepreneurship. Since the beginning of the school year the class at CHS has been participating in the FIRE Within program and has been working tirelessly to start a business geared toward ending teen suicide within their community. The Carson J Spencer Foundation relies on the support of community business partnerships, like West Pines, through the “adopt-a-classroom” program, to bring the FIRE Within to additional schools around Colorado.
