In 2020, The Weld Trust joined forces with North Range Behavioral Health with a grant for $700,000 to help deliver mental health services for Weld county residents. On January 19th, North Range opened the Crisis Resiliency Center located in Frederick.
Prior to the opening of this Center, residents in Southern Weld County dealing with a crisis related to mental health or substance abuse disorders had to rely on Greeley, Longmont, emergency services or local hospitals for assistance.
The Crisis Resiliency Center is open 8-5 Monday through Friday with plans to offer extended hours soon. It is located within the North Range Carbon Valley Counseling Center at Carbon Valley, 5901 Majestic Street. The Center will provide a safe and inviting place for people experiencing a crisis, or who might need that critical emotional support before a crisis occurs.
The Weld Trust grant also supports an expansion of the important work done by the North Range Suicide Education and Support Services team. This additional funding has allowed them to begin offering more local suicide prevention trainings and education that help reduce the stigma that keeps teens and adults from getting help when they are thinking about suicide.
This grant will help North Range Behavioral Health continue to provide these critical and necessary services to Weld residents for years to come.
