Let’s talk. Colorado Spirit counselors understand what you are going through and talking to them is free, confidential and anonymous. Talk to someone who is trained, knowledgeable and never judges. Sometimes it can help to talk with someone you don’t know.
The Colorado Spirit support line provides a safe, anonymous outlet for those who may be experiencing a number of emotions due to the effects of the pandemic. Trained counselors are here to talk to people of all ages who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, hopelessness, worry or even cabin-fever at levels they never have before. People may not be at the crisis level but are feeling like they need someone to talk to and help them work through this extremely difficult time.
Colorado Spirit, is funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with oversight by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and through close collaboration between SummitStone Health Partners and the Health District of Northern Larimer County.
