For Our Community
Each year, Jefferson Center for Mental Health makes a difference in the lives of thousands of community members struggling with mental health disorders.
Here Are Some of the Ways We Are Supporting Our Community Each Day
For over 25 years, Jefferson Center has been the lead agency of the Suicide Prevention Coalition, a community from Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin Counties, addressing suicide prevention issues. Valuable resources including warning signs, what to do, resources and suggestions for survivors are provided through materials available to organizations, at events throughout the community.
Mental Health First Aid teaches the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Jefferson Center for Mental Health is proud to offer these interactive 8-hour course free of charge to our community members. Health First Aid does not teach people to be therapists, rather it teaches a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care.
