Suicide and Crisis Hotlines
Free, confidential, professional help is available 24/7 through Colorado Crisis Services. If your child is in crisis, call or text now.
What to know about calling 988:
If you call or text 988 from a phone number with a Colorado area code, you will automatically reach Colorado Crisis Services. If you live in Colorado but you call 988 from an out-of-state phone number, you will reach the 988 Suicide and Crisis Hotline and may speak to someone in another state. While this can be confusing, remember this: Colorado families can call either number for help. What matters most is that you call.
I Matter Colorado
On the I Matter website, you will take a brief, confidential survey that will match you or your child with a mental health provider. You will be eligible to receive 6 free sessions, no matter your responses. If you are 11 or younger, your parent will need to fill out the survey with you. Parents can also use the site and survey to connect with a mental health professional.
If you have health insurance, go to their website, and use the “Find a provider” feature to locate an in-network therapist.
