Youth Mental Health

Who’s Involved

Who’s Involved in this Collective Work?

The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is leading this coordinated effort to connect youth with mental health resources and supports that are critically needed.

The District Attorney’s Office has launched a “Summer Life Line” mental health crisis hotline, which connects youth facing mental health challenges to licensed mental health professionals from the office’s Youth Diversion Program.

“Our Life Line is a unique program for a district attorney’s office, but I envision our role in the community in a much broader sense. Our community is facing a mental health crisis, and my office has access to mental health resources to be able to help those in need. We are not just here to prosecute crime; we are here to make a difference. I want our communities to be safer for everyone, and I want everyone to know they are not alone. Our Life Line can help do just that.”
Brian Mason, 17th Judicial District Attorney (Adams and Broomfield Counties)
