Mental Health Center of Denver

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

As the Governor’s or Mayor’s Stay at Home orders change over these next days and weeks, it’s important to know that it remains safer to be at home to minimize the risk of being exposed to COVID-19. The Mental Health Center of Denver has extended remote services using video and telephone through September 2020. Receiving services through telehealth is a safe, confidential and convenient way to continue services with us. 

We are taking new clients. Please visit our Access Services page to get started.

If you are experiencing a crisis, please call Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-8255 or visit the Colorado Crisis Services webpage for more information.

For organizational updates, resources, news and information, we have created a COVID-19 webpage. If you have questions, we welcome you to call 303-504-6500.

The Word of Thanks that comes to mind when we think about the STAR program is "lives." Their work truly has the potential to save lives.

Talk to police or protesters and they'll agree - police officers are not social workers, yet they often end up on calls where someone in distress needs medical or mental health support, and not an armed response.
