Communities That Care
Communities That Care (CTC) is a coalition that is working to prevent youth problems here in Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs.
CTC helps strengthen communities, families, and the school system, so that we all do an even better job raising our children and keeping them out of trouble in the first place.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Utah youth ages 10-17. It is the second leading cause of death for ages 25-44 and the fourth-leading cause of death for ages 45-64. Overall, suicide is the eighth-leading cause of death for Utahns.
If you think someone might be considering suicide - Ask Them! This does not make someone more likely to attempt suicide and can help save lives.
If you or someone you know is at risk for suicide, take action immediately! Do not leave them alone.
- Call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or 911.
- Take the person to the emergency room or seek help from a mental health professional.
- Listen and tell them there is hope. It can be a great relief to someone in crisis when another person is willing to listen and talk with them about their thoughts.
Have a middle or high schooler? Download the SafeUT app to their phone and yours. Licensed clinicians provide 24/7 crisis intervention to youth through incoming chats, texts and calls by providing supportive or crisis counseling, suicide prevention, and referral services. Parents and care-givers can utilize this app, as well.
