Every minute in the United Sates a person attempts, but does not complete suicide. Until now, there was no support for people living through this trauma,but a non-profit in Montrose is trying to help.

The Kirwan-Carr Foundation was set up to help families dealing with attempted suicide. The organization is just getting started and is trying to raise funds so they can launch a Web site.

They're hosting a benefit concert at the Turn of the Century Saloon in Montrose. The event will be held on Friday, Nov. 6, with hope of raising awareness and funds. Only 200 tickets will be available for the event.
