Dear community members –
In addition to serving as the safety net provider for mental health and addiction recovery services in Boulder and Broomfield counties, Mental Health Partners (MHP) also fills the role as an expert resource for issues relating to mental wellbeing and the path to recovery. During these uncertain and anxious times, it is more important than ever for community members to be able to access reputable, instructive and helpful resources on these topics.
With that in mind, our expert staff has created a “Mental Health Packet” that features resources, information and tips regarding parenting, suicide prevention, reducing anxiety and more during this public health crisis. Documents in this packet are available in both English and Spanish and include:
- How to Maintain Mental Wellness During COVID-19
- List of MHP Locations and Services
- Tips for Parents and Children During COVID-19
- Suicide Risk During COVID-19
The packet is now available for download on our website: www.mhpcolorado.org/covid-19-updates. Please feel free to share these documents with your staff, community and network! Our goal is to continue to add other critical information to it over the next few weeks.
Additionally, our Community Health Workers are still available to help navigate individuals through various community resources – albeit in a digital role. More information about how to contact them and local resources can be found here: www.mhpcolorado.org/community-health-workers.
As a reminder, MHP continues to provide essential mental health, addiction recovery and crisis support services to the community, including:
- Accepting new clients via our main phone number (303) 443-8500, with assessment and evaluations conducted using telehealth.
- The 24/7 Walk-in Crisis Center & Addiction Services remains open. Community members not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can utilize the Walk-In facility at 3180 Airport Road, Boulder CO. If an individual is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we encourage him/her to call 1 (844) 493-TALK (8255) or text TALK to 38255 to receive mental health crisis care.
- The MESA (Moving to End Sexual Assault) hotline and victim advocacy services continue to operate from remote locations. Community members in need of immediate support can call their hotline at (303) 443-7300.
We remain honored to join other community partners as a bright light in these dark and uncertain times. Our hope is that this information, and our steadfast presence, will support continued health and hope.
Jen and Dixie
