    Working Minds Suicide Prevention Training

    Working Minds trains organizations to proactively address the early warning signs of suicide in the workplace. Just as organizations have realized they can help reduce heart disease by encouraging exercise, they can also reduce suicide by promoting mental health and encouraging early identification and intervention. This training will educate and equip businesses with tools to address mental health and suicide concerns within the workplace

    Working Minds is a program of the CU Johnson Depression Center.

    Heritage Cares

    Heritage Cares is a program that the AGC is piloting between June and November of 2022.  This is a virtual education platform and program that directly helps individuals and their family members struggling with stress, substance misuse, addiction, suicidal ideation, and grief utilizing evidence-based strategies. It provides easy access to confidential private support at any time and at any stage of the recovery journey.

    The program includes a short assessment, and clients utilize the base program which has videos for areas of concern, in the form of education, stories, or conversations.  No one knows who accesses what topic and all identifying information is kept anonymous. Unlimited access for employees and their family members is included in the base price and for this pilot the AGC is covering 50% of the base price. 

    The Investment:

     $1.25 per employee per month (PEPM).  Assuming 100 employees it would be $125/month but, you’d pay $62.50/month for the annual plan for all employees and their families.  If an employee or their family member initiates peer coaching, then it’s $175/family/per month.

    For the 6 month pilot, the AGC is able to cover 50% of the base cost for up to 2,500 employees.

    Information Session:

    On May 17th, from Noon to 2pm an information session will be held by Heritages Cares. Heritage Cares will be there to answer all your questions, giving you time to determine whether you’d like to be a part of the pilot before the end of the month.

    To learn more about the Heritage Cares educational platform and peer coaching or to receive an invitation to the information session contact Erika Anderson, erika@agcolorado.org
