Mental health resources

We GRIT by with a little help from our friends. But sometimes, we need a little extra help. El Paso County’s network of mental health experts are available and ready to meet you wherever you are.

You're not alone.

It takes GRIT to reach out and ask for help.

If we’ve learned anything since the start of this pandemic, it’s that “toughing it out” isn’t a long-term solution for your mental wellness. On the days that feel a little more challenging than most, we’re here.
