    Do you have support groups for people dealing with chronic mental illness themselves–or people dealing with chronic suicidal thoughts and failed attempts? When are your arts and music classes? Are they therapy based or more just for fun? I’ve looked at your calendar, but am not sure what all the titles mean. A couple people have recommended you as a resource.

    • Hello! I recommend you call the center so that we can talk to you about some of your questions. We currently do not have art and music classes but keep checking the calendar for new opportunities in the future. You can reach the mental health therapist for the center at 303-739-1581.
