Anyone can have a mental health crisis. A person has a mental health crisis when they are in a state of mind in which they are unable to cope with and adjust to the recurrent stresses of everyday living in a functional, safe way. We understand your reluctance to call 911 for assistance, please know that our community has taken steps to improve mental health crisis response.
Come learn about the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training which helps keep people living with mental illness and substance abuse stay out of jail. Trained CIT Officers use de-escalation techniques that improve the safety of the officer, consumer, and family members. CIT Officers provide care and help to consumers by transporting individuals in need of treatment to appropriate facilities and resources. Our community’s police agencies have CIT trained officers and asking for a CIT trained police officer improves response in a mental health crisis.

The State of Colorado is implementing new regulations governing assisted living facilities – new rules they will have to follow to operate and care for their residents. The draft rules being considered include items from dementia care standards supported by the Alzheimer’s Association. All the nearly 700 assisted living residences operating in our state will have to follow them if they are adopted. However, changes can still be made to them. You can help make these rules better for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
How? Attend one of the public meetings listed below and tell your family’s Alzheimer’s story as it relates to the assisted living residence your loved one lived in. The state agency considering these new rules needs to hear from families who utilized these facilities so they can ensure the rules work for the people who reside in them.
Use your story to improve the quality of every assisted living residence across our state. Your voice can make a difference!
