Metro Crisis Services is Expanding its Services Statewide!
The state of behavioral healthcare – specifically crisis care– has been at the forefront of Coloradans' minds, from citizens to state lawmakers, for several years. In 2013, legislation was passed to create a comprehensive system of crisis care, including a state-wide crisis hotline and warmline. Metro Crisis Services participated in a highly competitive bid process with several vendors and was selected as the preferred organization to implement Colorado’s hotline and warmline services. On May 1, 2014, the Colorado Department of Human Services finalized its contract with Metro Crisis Services, authorizing its statewide expansion of services.
2014 will be a year of significant growth and change for crisis intervention in Colorado and for Metro Crisis Services as an organization. We invite you to experience the “Metro Crisis Services difference” first hand
