On 11 News Today we had Sonja Encke from Veterans Affairs Medical Center in our studio for a live interview.

She discussed that Grand Junction's suicide rate is double that of the national average and gave resources you can turn to if you need assistance.

You can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline which is a 24-hour, toll-free suicide prevention service available to anyone in suicidal crisis. If you need help, please dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You will be routed to the closest possible crisis center in your area.

You can also visit the website linked below this story for more information.
