17 April 2020 ~ Community-based organizations are still providing services to students and taking referrals.

Students who see community-based providers at school for mental health (such as MHCD, JFS or Maria Droste) should contact their provider for care options.

School-Based Denver Health Clinics (SBHC): All School-Based Denver Health clinics are currently closed for in-person appointments but are still offering telehealth sessions.

Denver Health School-Based Medical Providers are available by phone to answer any medical questions families or students might have; they can assist with non-urgent medical questions, medical refills, and help connect you to other Denver Health resources including mental health services.

Students needing care may begin by calling the main line at the Place Bridge SBHC call center: 720-424-2050.  After hours and weekends, students should call the Denver Health nurse line at 303-739-1211 for information on how to access care.
