For this episode, we are joined by Camille who is the division director for Community Behavioral for the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health.

The Office of Behavioral Health funds and oversees Colorado Crisis Services. The hardest part about getting help for a mental health, substance use or emotional concern is knowing where to start—especially when an issue reaches the point of crisis.

Just call 844-493-TALK (8255), or text TALK to 38255, and you’ll speak with a trained counselor who will provide support and connect you to further resources.
