What are some of the acute mental healthcare services available at CU Anschutz?

I’ve heard about the upcoming Zoom support sessions, including sessions for the Asian American/Pacific Islander community. When will they take place?

The department is offering hour-long Zoom support sessions to CU Anschutz faculty, staff and students. Click the session you wish to attend below to register. Some sessions are open to the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) community only, so they may have a space to process the shooting in Atlanta.
