Colorado Spirit has a warm-line that is free to call and available 24/7 every day of the year. Colorado Spirit counselors are trained staff who understand what you are going through and can help talk you through your challenging time. They are a combination of mental health paraprofessionals and professionals who support community members in functioning and coping with disaster disruptions through crisis counseling services.
“Sometimes we don’t want to burden our friends and family by talking about our problems. This warm line is an opportunity to vent to someone who is here to listen, without judgment, and to offer solutions from an outsider’s perspective,” shares Colorado Spirit Program Manager Alison Hartman.
The Colorado Spirit Social Hour is a free weekly Zoom meeting covering various topics shared in a group setting. Meetings offer tips and activities related to COVID-19 and are held on Mondays at 10 am and Thursday at 2 pm. Topics range from tips for specific populations, like parents or older adults, to information on grief and loss, navigating the holiday season, self-care, and substance abuse. These programs will continue through Spring, download the Social Hour Handout for more details.
