Thinking about your child’s mental health?

“I Matter” program offers free youth counseling sessions

Posted on April 1, 2022 2022Health and Human ServicesNews and Events


We’re living in challenging times – and so are our children. If you are a parent seeking a check-up for your child’s mental health, there’s a free and easy-to-access resource.

A new state program, called I Matter, provides up to six free behavioral health sessions for youth in Colorado. Visit IMatterColorado.org to take a confidential survey about mental health, and, if you choose, schedule sessions with a licensed behavioral health professional, primarily via telehealth.

If your child is in crisis now – call the Colorado Crisis Service hotline, 1-844-TALK (8255). Counselors are available 24/7.

Established by Colorado House Bill 21-1258, I Matter provides access to mental health and substance use disorder services for youth, including addressing needs that may have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is open to all youth 18 years old and younger (or up to 21 years old if receiving special education services.)

In Douglas County, we know behavioral and mental health is important for our community. Everyone has mental health – and we all face challenges with our moods and emotions from time to time. Let’s talk openly about it. Visit the Let’s Talk webpage (Hablemos) for tips on starting the conversation, along with information and resources.
