Thanks to Governor Hickenlooper’s emphasis on mental health for all Coloradans and funding from the state legislature, an array of mental health services have launched statewide as the Colorado Crisis Services network. Here on the western slope Mind Springs Health & West Springs Hospital, through association with West Slope Casa, have partnered with Colorado Crisis Services to provide new and/or enhanced services.
Mind Springs Health Mobile Crisis Response has added staff in continuing to serve all of the 23,000 square miles we cover, 24/7/365.
Transitions at West Springs (adjacent to West Springs Hospital) has 11 new beds available for those in need of a short-term psychiatric stay. Other services, like respite stays, are also available through the Colorado Crisis Services network.
Access these services through Mind Springs Health's mental health hotline, or the new statewide hotline. 1.844.493.TALK (8255)
24/7/365, anyone of any age can call and speak with a trained professional who will provide immediate support and connection to further resources.

While the exact cause of most mental illnesses is not known, research shows that many are caused by a combination of genetic, biological, psychological and environmental factors, not personal weakness or a character defect. Recovery from a mental illness is not simply a matter of will and self-discipline.
Outpatient therapy is available, accessible & affordable. If hospitalization is needed, West Springs Hospital offers the only psychiatric hospital between Denver & Salt Lake City.
