Mental Health

Let’s Talk about our Mental and Emotional Health

Our mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health and now, more than ever, it’s important for us to connect with others. Simply talking with someone can make you, and them, feel better.

Calling, texting, video chatting and social media are all great ways to reach out to your family, friends and community. Take a moment to check in — ask how they are feeling and share what you are feeling. It’s an easy step we can all do to feel better and help others. It may even save a life.

The more we all talk about our challenges to living a happy, balanced life, the more likely we are to seek help when we need it.  Watch and share these Let’s Talk messages.

People who need immediate support due to a mental health crisis should contact Colorado Crisis Services – call 1.844.493.TALK(8255) or text TALK to 38255. This agency has trained counselors who are available 24/7/365 to work with persons in crisis and the people supporting them.

Behavioral and Mental Health – including reducing substance abuse – was one of the top issues our community identified as part of the Public Health Improvement Plan.

Douglas County has a strong history of convening mental health resources through the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative. The Initiative and Health Department have started working together to continue to find innovative ways to serve our community with mental health resources.
