Thank you for your interest in Mental Health Colorado’s In This Together Initiative, a short-term initiative to provide a little bit of social contact by phone as we all adhere to social distancing guidelines..
As our state is slowly beginning to ease some restrictions put into place to slow the spread of COVID-19, Mental Health Colorado is no longer making calls.
Even when this crisis passes, don’t lose sight of prioritizing mental health. We need to be increasingly understanding and compassionate with ourselves and others when it comes to our mental health. The shame of talking about mental health has taken a notable shift during this pandemic. It’s not as uncommon now to ask a coworker about their mental health or to FaceTime someone just to admit you’re feeling lonely or anxious. These are behaviors we should continue long after this crisis passes. Creating healthier minds is a cultural shift and an ongoing work in progress. And everybody can do it.
If you are more seriously concerned about your own mental health or that of someone close to you, you can call the Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-8255 or text “TALK” to 38255. You can also learn more about taking care of your mental health during the pandemic at www.mentalhealthcolorado.org/free-resources/
