About Us

Our Team 

We are supported by a small-but-mighty staff, a dedicated board of directors and our amazingly talented counselors.

Our Mission

Resilience1220 provides free counseling services to youth ages 12-20 in the mountain communities west of Denver. Through individual counseling, support groups and community outreach, we work to raise awareness of the social, emotional, and mental-health issues young adults face, and to provide the necessary life skills to create wellness and resiliency in their lives.

Our Vision

We empower young people and their families in our mountain communities to build resilience, strength, and the tools to master life's challenges.

Our Story

We help young people build resilience for life. Through counseling, support groups, and community outreach, we work to raise awareness of the social, emotional, and mental health issues young adults face, and to provide the necessary life skills to create wellness and resiliency in their lives.

 

May of 2019, our mountain communities faced the reality of three teen suicides. We were made painfully aware of the mental health issues that young people face and the lack of life saving resources accessible to them. Resilience1220 was founded by a group of local therapists and community members. They worked tirelessly to break down barriers to neighborhood mental health resources and the social stigmas around seeking care. We provide confidential counseling services to youth ages 12 to 20 years old at no cost. Our service area includes Evergreen, Conifer, Bailey, Clear Creek, Gilpin, and Park counties.

 

Counseling sessions with Resilience1220 teach stress-reduction techniques, tools to ask for and provide help, validation, a place to sort through belief systems, and a non-judgmental place to share their feelings.

 

Resilience1220 fosters an environment of mutual respect in which our staff, clients, and volunteers can feel valued. We seek to serve all members of our community, without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation or identity, abilities, political affiliation, or education. We are open to all and see diversity as a source of strength.

The Resilience group literally saved my life. I really understand now that no matter what your body size, we all have similar difficulties.

I honestly didn't know how to help my child in their time of need, but Resilience1220 consistently showed up for him and helped us get the right tools, support and hope.
