Last year, Mental Health America reported some sad news: the state of Colorado ranked third-highest in terms of mental illness. A staggering 19.55% of Colorado residents suffer from some type of mental disorder. Making matters worse, seven counties of Colorado, (Baca, Bent, Conejos, Rio Grande, Las Animas, Costilla and Huerfano), consistently rank among the US counties with the highest rate of drug overdose deaths. We want to help. The following hotlines are available to all residents of the Centennial State, and the last two are available nationally. If you or someone you love needs help, please call whichever hotline is most suitable, and please call today.
As a Colorado resident, simply dialing 211 leads to an entire network of free and confidential assistance. Colorado 2-1-1 offers free counseling, treatment programs, free information on mental health and substance abuse, as well as legal services and much more.
