New Crisis Hotline Promises Help
Last week, we reported that Colorado's suicide rate is the
highest in 20 years. The economy and the lack of mental health services are
partly to blame, experts say. There’s a new resource that could help bring the
suicide rate down at least in Metro Denver. A new ‘round the clock crisis
hotline is now available for free. There's broad agreement the crisis line
could help people. But as Colorado Public Radio Health Reporter Eric Whitney
explains, that’s only if it survives.
The number to reach the crisis hotline in metro
Denver is 888-885-1222.
