Crisis Resilience Center
With the expansion of services in the southern region of Weld county, North Range Behavioral Health is dedicated to providing quality care and assessments to individuals and families who are in need of crisis intervention. In addition to housing crisis walk-in services and mobile crisis services, we will eventually be creating a 23-hour observation program. Additionally, part of this expansion is the development of the "living room" model and expanding our work with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. The specially trained staff oversees emergency walk-in services and crisis calls for the Weld County area. Consumers can expect to have a thorough assessment of their needs and situation upon contacting our staff who assists in determining what level of care would most benefit the individual in the least restrictive setting.
