Types of treatment

Our mental health services include individual, family and group therapy, psychiatric assessment/care, and healthy living education and support. Care teams may include crisis care, mental health specialists, psychiatric providers, case managers, vocational specialists and peer specialists.

Crisis care: Call us 24/7 for crisis care through the Axis Care Hotline, 970.247.5245. People experiencing a crisis can also get help through teletherapy, a Regional Crisis Team, and crisis stabilization at the Acute Treatment Unit. 

Individual therapy: Individual therapy is available in person or through televideo. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Individual therapy is also called  psychotherapy, talk therapy and counseling. 

Group therapy: Group therapy is available in person or through televideo meetings with other patients. Our staff members lead the sessions, which have approximately 8 to 10 participants. Group therapy, like individual therapy, is intended to help people who would like to improve their ability to cope with difficulties and problems in their lives. The therapist uses the emotional interactions of the group members to help them find relief and change their behavior. The aim of group psychotherapy is to help with solving the emotional difficulties

Family therapy: In family therapy, two or more members of a family attend sessions together. It’s a way for you and your family to learn how to maintain healthy relationships, communicate well and work together to solve problems.  

Mental health case management: It’s the job of a mental health case manager to look closely into your life and use their expertise to help you find long-term solutions. Case managers help you make a plan to avoid setbacks and overcome challenges in your life. They coordinate community services such as health care, food, housing, transportation, employment and education.

Psychiatric care: A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who can prescribe medication and diagnose medical as well as mental health issues. In addition, a psychiatrist looks at how a mental health condition can affect other medical issues, such as heart disease and obesity. This can be particularly helpful if you feel like your mental health issues have taken a toll on your physical health. Our psychiatrists and therapists work together to provide comprehensive mental health treatment. While therapists help people address the cause of their problems, psychiatrists prescribe and monitor medications to control symptoms. This combination aids the healing process.
