DENVER (KDVR) – Mental Health Colorado has started In This Together, providing a way for people who are feeling lonely and isolated to connect by receiving friendly, supportive phone calls for old-fashioned conversation.

“What we need is social closeness, solidarity, and support”, said Mental Health Colorado President & CEO Vincent Atchity.

“In This Together is a way to create a little bit of social contact, all over the state, with a friendly phone call.”

Anyone can sign up on Mental Health Colorado’s website.

Colorado Crisis Services is available for those who are more seriously concerned about their own mental health: 1-844-493-TALK (8255) or text “TALK” to 38255 for immediate help.

In This Together is for anyone feeling the need to connect.
