Connecting Youth Crisis Services Messaging
This copy can be used alongside any of the approved image assets.

Have you heard of the Below the Surfacecampaign? This awareness effort run by the Colorado Department of Human Services aims to help teens connect to and get support from Colorado Crisis Services by texting “TALK” to 38255. The line allows anyone to text 24/7 with a trained counselor on a personal, free, confidential line. Below the Surface was created by youth for youth who feel pressured to appear as if everything is fine, but just “below the surface” struggle with feelings of isolation, stress, anxiety and depression related to studies, drugs, alcohol, and relationships. The messaging tries to reassure young adults that it’s OK to ask for help, no one dealing with a mental health or substance use challenge is alone, and regardless of how big or small the challenge is, there is a trustworthy resource to turn to. Colorado Crisis Services is recruiting youth and trusted adults to share Below the Surface in their communities. Visit coloradocrisisservices.org/toolkit/youth-campaign/ to learn how to get involved in the Below the Surface youth leadership program, to access assets for publishing to your social media feeds, and to order or download free campaign materials.
