GREATER MENTAL HEALTH ACCESS FOR COLORADO

We are Colorado’s first statewide resource for mental health, substance use or emotional crisis help, information and referrals. We formed as a part of the initiative set forth by Gov. John Hickenlooper, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Human Services, to strengthen Colorado’s mental health system. Our purpose is to provide greater access to mental health services, ensuring Coloradans get the right services in the right locations at the right time.

PHONE & WALK-IN SERVICES

REFERRAL ONLY SERVICES

  • CRISIS LINE:
    1-844-493-TALK (8255) is a 24/7/365 support line for anyone affected by a mental health, substance use or emotional crisis. All calls are connected to a mental health professional, who will provide immediate support and connections to further resources.
  • WALK-IN CRISIS SERVICES/ STABILIZATION UNITS:
    Our walk-in crisis services are open 24/7, and offer confidential, in-person crisis support, information and referrals to anyone in need. If you need in-person assistance, or are helping others with a crisis, you can always visit a walk-in crisis services location near you. Some locations provide crisis beds for 1-5 days, for either voluntary or involuntary treatment. View the map to find the locations nearest you.
  • RESPITE CARE:
    Respite Care can only be initiated by a Crisis Services Clinician after an in-person meeting. Those needing safe, peer-managed stabilization and support can stay voluntarily for 1-14 days to get the help they need.
  • MOBILE CARE:
    With a referral from a Crisis Services Clinician, we’ll send out a mental health professional to provide support for those in need of face-to-face help, but who are unable to reasonably reach a walk-in crisis services location. Call 1-844-493-TALK (8255) to learn more about how to access this service.
