When I reached out, I was struggling with my relationship with my mom. She and I had always struggled. We'd argue. We'd yell. We'd fight. She hardly ever understood me or agreed with me, but she'd always been the one who'd at least listen to me. Now she wasn't even doing that anymore. Suddenly, the one person I'd always been able to talk to, wasn't talking to me. And I realized my relationship with her was the thing I really needed to talk about. So I called Colorado Crisis Services. I talked for what felt like forever, and they listened. Things with my mom still aren't great, but they're getting better. And thanks to the help I've received through Colorado Crisis Services, I'm getting better too. And if you reach out, so can you.
When I reached out, I was neck deep in debt. I’d been laid off months ago, our savings were dwindling, and I wasn’t sure how, or if, we’d make it. I felt stuck and afraid. I couldn’t get our financial struggles off my mind. At 3am on a sleepless night, I finally called Colorado Crisis Services. With kindness, they listened and walked me through steps that I could take to get further help. Everything wasn’t immediately solved, but I was relieved. That same expert help is waiting for you, too. Just call. You’ll be glad you did.
I knew having a baby would be stressful. I was ready for that. But I wasn’t ready for the feeling that everything was spinning out of control. My husband’s job demanded long hours, so I was usually on my own. I was overwhelmed, exhausted beyond belief, and had very little support. Even worse, I was starting to resent my own child—and that feeling terrified me. On the verge of breaking, I finally called Colorado Crisis Services. I spoke with a parent who had gone through a surprisingly similar situation to mine, and she walked me through some additional steps for getting help. That one simple call has made such a big difference. And it can make a difference for you, too.
When I reached out, my family farm was failing and there was no upside in sight. When I took over from my father, our farm was booming. But after disastrous floods and commodity prices plummeting, I felt trapped, and my anxiety felt impossible to overcome. I was losing $30,000 a month, and suicide invaded every thought. A friend recommended Colorado Crisis Services, and they helped me just in time. Thanks to the professionals at Colorado Crisis Services, I got through to see better days. And so can you.
When I reached out, I was struggling with accepting my sexuality. Ever since I was a kid I knew that I was different. I later figured out I was asexual, an identity so uncommon, even some in the LGBT community didn’t understand. I felt isolated, alone, and completely misunderstood. The day I found Colorado Crisis Services, I was in a particularly depressed state of mind. They listened to me. They accepted me. And they helped me start to find true acceptance from the person who mattered most: me. Colorado Crisis Services was there for me when I needed them. And they'll be there for you, too.
When I reached out, I was on the verge of suicide. For years I struggled with depression. In my culture, depression is seen as something you just have to shake off or get over. I was trying to treat it on my own with will power, but it wasn’t working. Thankfully, reaching out to Colorado Crisis Services did. The woman on the phone helped save me from making a really terrible mistake. She saved my life that night. And I'm so glad she did. No matter what you're going through, Colorado Crisis Services means you don't have to go through it alone.
When I reached out, I was killing myself with alcohol—or it was killing me. A close family member had just passed away, and I'd started turning to the bottle for support. I tried to convince myself I had it all under control, but in reality things just kept slipping further out of my control. One morning I woke up after having blacked out the night before. I didn't even know where I was. All I knew was I needed help. Colorado Crisis Services helped me find the rehab and counseling that saved my life. And they'll be there for you, too. So reach out, and get the help that's already waiting for you.
