REPS seeks emergency department volunteers

Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide is collaborating with Yampa Valley Medical Center to increase the number and presence of volunteers in the hospital emergency department assisting suicidal patients.

The SPA program, created by REPS, enlists advocate volunteers who give information and support to patients admitted to the ED for suicidal ideation or attempted suicide.

SPA volunteers are trained in both REPS and hospital procedures and can volunteer to be on call for as little as one 12-hour shift per month or as many as two shifts per week.

For information on SPA and to learn more about volunteering, email REPS at or Pam Bosch, hospital volunteer coordinator, at
