The mental health organizations and public health departments from Aspen to Parachute have come together to make sure you are prioritizing your overall WELLNESS and taking steps to reduce stress and anxiety. Together, our teams will be communicating weekly through the Aspen Strong newsletter to assure that the mental health of the community is supported. Use this page to find tools and links to helpful resources for you, your family, and your business.
Our Human Services Departments have resources to help you access financial emergency assistance, emotional and mental health support, food assistance and housing support needs during this difficult time. Please find links to resources below as well as a hotline for all your Covid-19 questions.
During this time of uncertainty we want you to know that we SEE you. We want you to know that social distancing doesn’t have to mean social disconnection. HELP IS HERE…a phone call or a click away! For good vibes, helpful tips, and hopeful messages find us on social media!

“Temper fear with reason, panic with patience and uncertainty with education. We have an opportunity to learn a great deal about health hygiene and limiting the spread of innumerable transmissible diseases in our society. Let’s meet this challenge together in the best spirit of compassion for others, patience, and above all, an unfailing effort to seek truth, facts and knowledge as opposed to conjecture, speculation and catastrophizing. Facts not fear. Clean hands. Open hearts.”
