Public Awareness Initiatives
Domestic Violence Awareness
Acts of violence within intimate relationships can have serious consequences to the victims and families involved. Domestic violence includes physical, sexual, emotional and psychological abuse. Arapahoe County wants to end domestic violence and provide helpful resources for the victims and those who may need to support someone near and dear to them. Learn about the signs of domestic violence and where you can get help.
Suicide Prevention Awareness
Arapahoe County recognizes suicide is a serious public health issue that can have lasting harmful effects on you, your family, friends, co-workers and the community. The causes are complex but our goal of suicide prevention is simple. We want to help individuals realize that suicide is not the answer and that help is out there. Learn about warning signs and crisis resources.
