Times are tough, and we’re here to help. Our 24/7 crisis line is still the same number, but now it has a broader purpose. Anyone may call the number to learn how to manage their mental health issues. Call the Axis Care Hotline for a local response to your crisis and behavioral health needs: (970) 247-5245
What to expect when you access the Axis Care Hotline local crisis support:
- You will be quickly connected to the Axis Care Hotline over the phone. A crisis can occur at any time of the day or night, so that’s why we offer crisis services twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
- You will always connect with a real person.
- Conversations with you are confidential. We want you to feel safe openly sharing your thoughts, concerns, and needs with us. The only time we might reach out to others about our conversation with you is if we’re concerned for your immediate safety or the safety of someone else.
A crisis occurs when a stressful life event overwhelms a person’s ability to cope effectively with it. In this situation, a person may feel emotionally unbalanced, and usual coping mechanisms and problem-solving fail to bring back balance. The distress of a crisis event may disrupt a person’s ability to work, maintain caring connections to others or sustain purpose and meaning in life. Common crisis call topics include suicidal thoughts, depression, substance use, grief and loss, self-injury, trauma, family crisis, anxiety, domestic violence, and concerns for a friend or family member.
A crisis is different than an emergency, which is life-threatening and demands an immediate 911 response. If you are an emergency situation (concerns with physical safety, medical issues, or physical violence), please call 911.
