Fighting Colorado's Suicides

A few days ago we were looking at the stigma-busting that sports columnist Woody Paige was doing in Denver by opening up about his own struggles with depression... here's a TV news report from Colorado looking at what two local charities are doing to fight suicide in their state.

The two groups are The Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program (founded by the parents of Mike Emme, who died at 17 years of age) and the Carson J Spencer Foundation (founded in memory of Carson J. Spencer, who took his life after a difficult battle with bipolar disorder in December of 2004).
