Feeling anxious, stressed, frustrated, or overwhelmed because of COVID-19? There are now expanded hours for free emotional support services by phone.

Help is available 24 hours, seven days a week, for Larimer County residents who need support, resources, or just someone to talk to. The phone number is 970-221-5551. Mental health professionals from Connections provide support by phone or videoconference, as needed, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., with staff from SummitStone Health Partners providing assistance overnight.

Connections is a program of the Health District of Northern Larimer County.

Anyone in crisis should call the SummitStone Crisis Center at 970-494-4200, ext. 4, text TALK to 38255, or call 911.

Additional resources are available from the Mental Health and Substance Use Alliance of Larimer County.
