New Ad: 9-8-8

September 4, 2020

Denver, CO — Cory Gardner for Senate today released a new ad on Gardner’s 9-8-8 national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline bill featuring testimony from Kristen Christy, a prominent advocate for suicide prevention.

“One life always influences another, so when you’re saving one life, you’re saving dozens of other lives as well,” said Christy. “Senator Gardner has worked hard to increase access to lifesaving support, like the 9-8-8 national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline and Colorado is lucky to have a champion in Senator Gardner who puts people over politics.”

“I made it my mission to pass the 9-8-8 national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline in the Senate to provide lifesaving support for people suffering from a mental health crisis,” said Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO). “No one should ever have to experience the pain of losing a loved one to suicide.”

Background:

  • Cory Gardner’s 9-8-8 national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline bill passed the Senate with unanimous support in May 2020.
