MCES Partners with Rocky Mountain MIRECC on A.C.E. Brochure

Saturday, October 29, 2016

In 2011, MCES issued the "ACE" (Ask, Care, Engage) card succinctly stating how to help someone who might be suicidal. The card was adapted from a similar resource used by the Veterans Administration (VA). MCES has now adapted another VA suicide prevention resource for general community use.

Last spring, MCES began working with the Rocky Mountain MIRECC (Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center) for VA Suicide Prevention, Denver, CO to make practical suicide prevention information more available. The first product is a new trifold based on the ACE Card. MCES is now working with the Rocky Mountain MIRECC on a version of the ACE trifold based on the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline that will be made available nation-wide.
