Responding to the gap in Mesa County’s walk-in crisis services after the Western Slope’s crisis center recently relocated to Montrose, West Springs Hospital will now offer walk-in mental health and addiction crisis services seven days a week, 23 hours a day at its campus on North Avenue and 28 3/4 Road in Grand Junction. Walk-in services began on November 5.
Anyone experiencing a crisis or emergency related to mental health or addiction can walk in or be brought to the crisis center at West Springs Hospital anytime except between 4:00-5:00am. Assistance can also be arranged 24/7 by calling the West Springs Hospital assessment and admissions line at 970.201.4299.
Contrary to unfounded rumors, Mind Springs Health and West Springs Hospital are not going anywhere. As Mind Springs Health is a Community Mental Health Center it is our responsibility to provide mental health treatment and emergency services to individuals and families who are low income or not covered by insurance, and we are committed to working with our community partners to ensure the behavioral health safety net is there for those who need it when they need it.
All Mind Springs Health outpatient services are open and available to people across the Western Slope. West Springs Hospital, the only psychiatric hospital between Denver and Salt Lake City, now has walk-in crisis services for those in a psychiatric emergency. Call 970.201.4299 to reach the Assessment and Admissions Team.
Mind Springs Health has not and will not abandon this community. As long as we have the resources to meet the need, we will do everything we possibly can to help people struggling with mental illness receive the care they deserve.
