North Range Behavioral Health promotes a philosophy of giving…to the community, to our customers, and to each other. The Chinese character representing GIVE can be seen throughout our organization, as a symbolic reminder of our mission and guiding principles.
While many of our programs are supported by self-paying customers, insurance plans, or government funding, many of our prevention, education, and recovery programs are not. We strongly believe that these programs are critical in preventing and addressing the human and societal cost of behavioral health issues. We have long been committed to providing these services to our communities—and your dollars can help us do this more effectively!
Our Early Childhood Mental Health Programs support families, new parents, and children under 5. SafeCare®, Family Connects, Parents as Teachers, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), and Project LAUNCH® provide valuable prevention and education resources as well as direct services in the home and in the community to families. Your donations can help support this important outreach to children and families.
A critically important prevention program, Suicide Education and Support Services (SESS), addresses the high rates of suicide in Weld County. SESS works to actively educate communities in Weld County about suicide and support survivors of suicide. Trainings include Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) and Safe:TEEN, and provide students and their communities the skills to help take action if warning signs of suicide are present. SESS also provides support to individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide and hosts an annual Remembrance and Education 3k event called “Glimmer of Hope” to support the work of SESS. These important prevention programs require financial support to ensure that the critical services they provide continue to be available to anyone in need.
Recovery support services are key to supporting wellness in adults with behavioral health challenges. These programs include Frontier House, an internationally accredited Clubhouse, as well as our Residential Services. Frontier House was founded in 1990 and provides individuals with community, fellowship, support, and assistance. An evidence-based program that proves that “work works,” the Clubhouse offers education, vocational opportunities and training, and skill development for people with mental illness. Because there is no government funding to support these services, Frontier House relies on donations like yours to support technology, training, vocational and educational certifications, and employment needs such as transportation passes and hygiene items.
North Range Residential Services are available on a continuum, ranging from staffed residences to supported housing to independent living. North Range staff assist individuals with eligibility and provide support for maintaining independence. Staffed Residential Homes have Clinical Care Assistants available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to monitor medications, help residents develop living skills, and facilitate group and recreational therapies. Supported housing provides assistance with adjustment, challenges and further development of independent living skills. Additionally, North Range offers opportunities for residents to live independently at reduced rates. However, there are high costs of cleaning, upkeep, and renovation associated with residential services. Your gift could help support adults who need support in finding and keeping housing.
North Range offers free Mental Health First Aid classes monthly. This interactive class helps individuals enhance their understanding of mental illness and addiction so that they can support those with related challenges. We offer modules that serve a variety of populations, including adults, youth, older adults, and military/veterans. Those who take the class learn to spot risk factors and warning signs of problems, including depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, substance use disorders, and self-injury. They leave class with a five-step action plan to assess and help individuals who may be in crisis and to offer appropriate professional, peer, and self-help resources. Your donation will support the purchase of class materials and outreach to build awareness and registration for classes. Your support will enhance our community’s awareness and knowledge of behavioral health issues, just as CPR and other first-aid classes teach individuals to respond to those in physical crises.
North Range Behavioral Health appreciates your gifts, large and small, to help us fund these important prevention, education, and recovery programs—your contributions will make a difference in the lives of many.
