Find Support and Hope – You Are Not Alone

Need help navigating these mental health resources?

Mental health navigation is a new and unique service that helps Summit County teenagers walk through the complex system of mental health care and gets people connected to the appropriate resource when they experience barriers to access. Use our self-service mental health navigation tool or connect with a mental health navigator to find the services that would be most beneficial for you.

Crisis Resources

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.
