Colorado Crisis Services

Have you encouraged someone to call 844-493-TALK yet?

Colorado Crisis Services

Help get the word out about this new service for Colorado families.

The hardest part about getting help for a mental health, substance use, or emotional issue is knowing where to begin – especially when an issue reaches a crisis point.

Colorado Crisis Services provides free, confidential, and immediate help for any mental health, substance use, or emotional concern, 24/7/365. Call 844-493-TALK (8255) to speak with a trained professional who will provide immediate support and connect you, or someone you know, to further resources.

Colorado Crisis Services is also a resource for case managers and all professionals connected with the child welfare system, Division of Youth Corrections, domestic violence victim services providers, and anyone working with at-risk families.   

We recently received data from the CDHS Administrative Review Division that shows "Mental Health" is one of the most common reasons why a child or youth involved with the child welfare system is in congregate care. A child or youth's mental health issues may be addressed at a lower level by better connecting families with the services available through Colorado Crisis Services. Help get kids the right care, at the right time, in the right place.
