In April of 2017, Foothills received Arts in Society Grant funding of $30,000 for “Help, Hope, Strength” a collaborative project with mural artist, Jolt (Jeremy Silas Ulibarri), Golden High School (GHS), the City of Golden and Golden Rotary. The project intends to fight mental health stigma and suicide in our high school community and beyond with a four-part project, including a parent workshop, theater, a documentary, and a mural.

Foothills will host the parent workshop with licensed therapist and artist, Dr. Deborah Bryon, which explores risk factors associated with suicide. This will be an interactive session that allows parents to identify warning cues and behaviors with an opportunity for discussion and questions. Dr. Bryon will also discuss how art can be used to start conversations about difficult topics with teenagers.


Deborah Bryon is a licensed psychologist and diplomate Jungian analyst, in private practice in Denver. She is a recent graduate of IRSJA, and member of NAAP. Deborah received her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Denver, and completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at UCLA in 1976.
