Peer services to help with mental health issues in Crested Butte
The Center for Mental Health is offering a new program free to the public: Peer Services. A peer is a caring community member who has walked through his or her own journey with mental health issues and is there to help you find your way through difficult times. Unlike therapy, a peer guides you from his or her own personal experience and can meet you for fun activities like walks, Nordic skiing, or coffee around town. Peers can address substance use issues, depression, anxiety and more. For more information call or text (970) 596-6287.
