Community Crisis Connection (CCC) was formed by six metro-area community mental health centers to provide crisis services as part of Colorado Crisis Services. CCC provides crisis services through 24-hour walk-in centers, mobile crisis teams, crisis stabilization units and community respite/residential services. These resources are supported by a 24x7x365 toll-free crisis support line at 1-844-493-TALK (8255) and text to TALK to 38255, and a Chat Line (available from 4pm-12am 7 days a week) operated by Rocky Mountain Crisis Partners.
Colorado Crisis Services (CCS) was formed in 2014 as an initiative set forth by Gov. John Hickenlooper and the Colorado Department of Human Services to strengthen Colorado's mental health system to provide greater access to resources, ensuring Coloradans get the right services, in the right locations, at the right time.
