Colorado Spirit

Mind Springs Health is proud to be part of the Colorado Spirit initiative, a FEMA-Funded COVID-19 recovery program to provide disaster survivors with community-based outreach, stress and resilience education, and connection to mental health and other community resources.

Our local outreach teams educate, inform, and support survivors in problem solving, prioritizing needs, and improving communication skills, thus empowering survivors to advocate for themselves.  They speak directly with individuals, groups and organizations impacted by the pandemic, and provide referrals and other helpful information.  The program is available to all COVID-19-impacted Coloradans FREE OF CHARGE.

All connections are done in a COVID-19 appropriate manner.  If you or someone you know has been impacted by the pandemic, please connect with Colorado Spirit.
