Colorado Crisis Resources (24/7) – 1-844-493-8255 

SMART TEAM – Systemwide Mental Assessment Response Team – is a plainclothes Summit County Sheriff deputy, a behavioral health specialist, and a case manager who respond to mental health-related cases — including suicide threats, welfare checks, and more — to try to stabilize the person involved and de-escalate the situation. The program delivers a continuum of care from crisis response through stabilization, with the ultimate goal of safe return to the community.

SMART will respond to emergency and non-emergency crisis calls.
