PSA - Mental Health Crisis Hotline

Help us spread the word about the state’s first ever statewide mental health crisis hotline, 1-844-493-TALK (8255). The line is staffed with trained professionals and peer counselors 24/7, providing counseling and referral sources to Coloradans experiencing a mental health crisis.

Research shows that individuals experiencing a mental health crisis who know how to access supportive services get more effective help sooner than those who struggle to find the help they need.

Please help us spread the word about the new mental health crisis hotline.


New Online Tool Helps Mandatory Reporters Keep Kids Safe and Families Healthy

The Colorado Department of Human Services announced a new online training opportunity for mandatory reporters who are required by law to report suspected child abuse and neglect.

Under Colorado law, nearly 40 professions are required to report suspected child abuse and neglect. A recent CDHS survey found that while 79 percent of mandatory reporters surveyed knew that they were required to report abuse or neglect, nearly half could not recall if they had received any training to help them know when to report or how to report.
