Hope Matinee...A Lunchtime Event Unlike Any Other!
Experience a day in the life of a crisis call center as actual callers’ stories are brought to life through interactive theatre. For many in our community, it is hard to grasp the impact or “feel” what it is really like to be an individual in crisis, calling the Metro Crisis Line, or be a clinician responding to the call. Because of the confidential and private nature of the work that MCS does, Hope Matinee will be our opportunity to make our work “real”, without jeopardizing the confidentiality that our callers value so much!

Key Mental Health Bill Passes in Colorado Legislature
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) is committed to enhancing the State's behavioral health crisis intervention services, as provided in Senate Bill 13-266. In July, CDHS released a set of Request for Proposals (RFP) in search of providers for a statewide hotline/warmline, crisis stabilization units, mobile crisis units and crisis respite services. MCS submitted a proposal for the statewide hotline/warmline component as our current expertise, services, and outcomes are aligned with those of the statewide hotline/warmline requirements.
At MCS, we understand the value of an effective 24/7 hotline and would be proud to add a warmline to our program. A warmline is answered by trained peers with life experience and would be a definite asset to our community. Regardless of the State's provider selection, we are most pleased that effective March 1, 2014, there will many more options for each of us and our families in Colorado who are in need of 24/7 mental health and substance abuse help and support! Thank you for the many community partners that contributed to the strength of our proposal!
