Social Emotional Supports
Here at Colorado Early Colleges-Parker (CECP), we recognize that students have a wide variety of needs and those needs may impact their daily and academic functioning. We have a School Psychologist and School Nurse on campus every day to help intervene in crises, collaborate and provide resources and implement services and programming as needed. Any parent, teacher, or student can request assistance for themselves or a student they know through our confidential referral form or directly to Dr. Betsy Basch, school psychologist, or Emily Bouhall, nurse and health resource coordinator.
Immediate Crisis Resources:
- The Colorado Crisis Services Line, 1-844-493-TALK (8255): This 24/7 toll-free hotline is available 365 days a year for anyone affected by a mental health, substance use or emotional crisis. All calls are connected to a mental health professional that will provide immediate support and connections to further resources.
- Colorado Crisis Walk-In Locations: Walk-in crisis service locations are open 24/7 and offer confidential, in-person crisis support, information and referrals to anyone who needs it. Walk-in locations can be found on the Colorado Crisis Services website at ColoradoCrisisServices.org.
- Crisis Chat Service: On ColoradoCrisisServices.org, individuals can chat with specialists for online emotional support, crisis intervention and suicide assessments. This feature is available from 4 p.m. to midnight, seven days a week.
- Crisis Text Service: Anyone can text the word TALK to 38255 anytime, from anywhere in Colorado about any type of crisis. This feature is available 24/7.
In addition to individual services, since the fall of 2017, we have implemented a campus-wide social-emotional curriculum, Sources of Strength, which aims to “provide the highest quality evidence-based prevention for suicide, violence, bullying and substance abuse by training, supporting, and empowering both peer leaders and caring adults to impact their world through the power of connection, hope, help and strength. We believe that many strengths are more powerful than one, and our united goal is to activate and mobilize these strengths in ways that positively change individuals and communities.”
