Mental Health Partners Distributes Mental Health Packet, Highlights COVID-19 Community Resources
In addition to serving as the safety net provider for mental health and addiction recovery services in Boulder and Broomfield counties, Mental Health Partners (MHP) also fills the role as an expert resource for issues relating to mental wellbeing and the path to recovery. During these uncertain and anxious times, it is more important than ever for community members to be able to access reputable, instructive and helpful resources on these topics.
With that in mind, MHP’s has created a “Mental Health Packet” that features resources, information and tips regarding parenting, suicide prevention, reducing anxiety and more during this public health crisis. Documents in this packet are available in both English and Spanish and include:
- How to Maintain Mental Wellness During COVID-19
- Tips for Parents and Children During COVID-19
- Suicide Risk During COVID-19
The packet is now available for download on our website: www.mhpcolorado.org/covid-19-updates. Also check out our social media sites (Facebook: @MentalHealthPartnersCO and Twitter: @MentalHealthCO) for additional information and tips.
As an additional resource, MHP’s Community Health Workers are available to help individuals navigate community resources during this time by providing virtual support via Facebook and their main phone line. They can be reached by visiting: www.mhpcolorado.org/community-health-workers.
MHP remains honored to join other community partners as a bright light in these dark and uncertain times. Our hope is that this information, and our steadfast presence, will support continued health and hope. We are also continuing to provide essential mental health, addiction recovery and crisis support services to the community, in the following ways:
- Accepting new clients via our main phone number (303) 443-8500, with assessment and evaluations conducted using telehealth.
- The 24/7 Walk-in Crisis Center & Addiction Services remains open. Community members not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can utilize the Walk-In facility at 3180 Airport Road, Boulder CO.
