Mental Health Crisis Response in Colorado

If you are experiencing an urgent mental health matter, you may find the number for your local crisis hotline in Colorado here.

The State of Mental Health in Colorado

Colorado currently ranks 28th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Colorado Department of Health Services (CDHS) Office of Behavioral Health oversees the two primary mental healthcare institutions in Colorado. The  Behavioral Health Task Force (BHTF) seeks to create a transparent evaluation of the current state of mental health in order to propose a roadmap to improved outcomes. By focusing on early prevention, cultural competency, and crisis intervention, we should see Colorado’s ranking in mental health rise in the coming years. Continuing to train qualified therapists, counselors, and psychologists ensures that Coloradans will be receiving high quality and relevant care. The CDHS is also working to alleviate the financial burdens associated with connecting those who suffer from mental illness with therapists, counselors, and appropriate treatment. Through increasing awareness, easing access to therapists, psychologists, and school counselors, and developing the psychiatric workforce, the State of Colorado is armed with the initiatives necessary to increase prevention of mental health illness.

Colorado’s Wildly Important Goals (WIGs)

Year after year, CDHS develops five goals that are to be measured and analyzed throughout the year. These goals often include reducing homelessness, crisis response, opioid treatments, and financial assistance with medical treatment for all Coloradans. You can learn more about the WIGs here. 

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse in Colorado, call Colorado’s Statewide Crisis Services hotline at 1-844-493-TALK (8255). This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
