Emergency mental health care provided round the clock
Community Reach Center reminds the public that the Behavioral Health Urgent Care (BHUC) center at 2551 W. 84th Ave. in Westminster is open 24/7.
The Behavioral Health Urgent Care team is comprised of trained mental health professionals available 24/7 to help individuals of all ages who are experiencing: thoughts of suicide, depression, overwhelming feelings of stress, anxiety, feelings of harming oneself or someone else, an increase in drug and alcohol use and family crises.
“During this difficult time, it is important that we take care of our mental health,” said Jenna Bogan, program manager at BHUC. “For those that are less familiar with our services, we conduct behavioral health assessments for those who are not feeling safe and are not sure where to turn.”
“If you aren’t feeling yourself or think you might need something more right now to support your mental health, please know we are here for you, 24/7,” she added.
Temporary signage was installed recently to help the public find the entrance to the center. Behavioral Health Urgent Care is located on the west side of the building on N. Bryant St. Turn north from 84th Ave. Parking in the west lot on Bryant Street. Described another way, the BHUC center is on the north side of 84th Avenue between Federal Boulevard and Zuni Street at 2551 W. 84th Ave.
Colorado Crisis Line option
People may also at any time call 1-844-493-TALK (8255), or text TALK to 38255 to speak with a trained professional at Colorado Crisis Services, which is a separate agency.
Ongoing COVID-19 concerns
The BHUC center is intended to serve general well-being as well as more acute experiences, such as trauma or suicidal ideation. For those who are concerned about COVID-19, please call the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment CO-HELP line at 303-389-1687 or 1-877-462-2911 for answers in many languages and for screening options.
“We are screening visitors at the door. If consumers are experiencing fever, shortness of breath or cough, they are asked to outreach to the hotline or their primary care physician. They are further asked to then connect with the Colorado Crisis Line for their behavioral health needs until they can be cleared,” Bogan added.
