We are excited to announce that our mobile crisis response team, termed SMART (‘Systemwide Mental Assessment Response Team’), is getting set up and ready to provide on-site crisis intervention services in Summit County. Attached is a summary of what SMART will offer our community. In light of this positive shift, please update your voicemails to include the option to call Colorado Crisis Services.
Colorado Crisis Services, which is staffed 24/7 by both peers and crisis clinicians, is capable of dispatching the SMART team if necessary. Please include something along the lines of the following in your voicemail message: “If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call Colorado Crisis Services at 844-493-8255, or text ‘TALK’ to 38255, to speak to a peer or a crisis clinician.”
