Health Center at Auraria Medical and Mental Health providers offer telehealth services to patients, when appropriate.

Telehealth is NOT for Emergencies
Telehealth is good for many things, but emergency care is not one of them. Whenever a person experiences potentially life-threatening signs and symptoms, you should not rely on a Telehealth visit.
This includes if you are in the midst of a mental health crisis, especially if you’re experiencing thoughts about harming yourself or anyone else. Do not try to rely on scheduling a Telehealth visit in these instances. You should call a Crisis Line or seek emergency services for more immediate help.
