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
  • Social Security number (for children, a social security number or date of birth)
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are providing as many services as we can through telehealth options, like video calls. Please contact us if you have any questions about accessing services remotely. We have also created a webpage with resources to help guide you through getting started with telehealth.
