What Happens When I Call the Access Center?

To access services at the Mental Health Center of Denver, the first thing to do is call the Access Center. Staff will ask you questions over the phone to learn more about you or your child. They will ask about who you are, your finances and ask for some clinical information. We use this to determine if you or your child meet our requirements to access services with us.
After that, our staff help identify which services you or your child may need. 
Access Center staff will ask you about:
  • Current and previous treatment information
  • Insurance information
