About Us:

Donors and Funding

The Sky Center of New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project strives to provide services at no cost to our clients and to make our services easily accessible to all who need them. 

We rely entirely on grants, individual donations, civic and faith groups, foundations and in-kind support so that both clients and staff can focus on the work at hand.

We are so grateful for the many donors listed below that make our services possible to the community. If you care about our mission, if your own life has been touched by suicide, depression, or related issues, or you want to be part of the collective invitation to offer hope, resiliency, and wellness to others- please send in your donation today and join our circle of care.

The Sky Center would like to give special thanks to the Edwards Wyatt Foundation for their generous donation that supported the development and creation of our new website. We would also like to give recognition to Joshua Sallach and Dickon Kent from Dsire Digital Design and Website Development for their work and support with designing and implementing our new website.

The Santa Fe Public School District has been a significant partner, providing facility space for our programs since 2009.

Suicide Statistics

The Need for Suicide Prevention and Intervention Services

  • Nationally among children aged 10 to 14, death by suicide is now more common than death from traffic accidents (National Center for Health Statistics, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2015).
  • New Mexico ranks FIRST in the nation for youth suicide ages 15-19. (CDC Wonder, 2017)
  • 40% of Santa Fe County high school students felt persistent sadness or hopelessness; 17% seriously considered suicide; and almost 10% attempted suicide in the past twelve months (NM Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey 2017).
  • 40% of LGBTQ youth (including more than half of transgender and non-binary youth) report seriously considering suicide in the past 12 months (National Survey on LGBTQ Mental Health, Trevor Project, 2019).

These statistics do not reveal the true extent of the problem: the devastating loss of promise and hopefulness in a young life that is impossible to quantify. Unfortunately, suicide is a largely ignored issue until it is brought to the forefront by the incomprehensible death of a child.

If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

You can also text HELP to 741-741 for free, 24-hour support from the Crisis Text Line.
