If you are bringing a child, you will be asked to attest that you have authorization for medical decision-making for the child. Please bring any court documents or other legal authorization if this situation applies to your family.

Where is the center located and what are the hours?

We are located in North Aurora at 791 Chambers Road.

The hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. It is recommended to arrive two hours prior to closing to allow providers with the time to help you effectively.

How old do I have to be to sign up for my own therapy?

In Colorado, minors 15 and older can consent to their own treatment without their parents being present. We do request that parents are present for children ages 15-18 if their treatment involves prescription medication.

Can I receive medication services at the Connect to Care Center?

Medication services are provided upon referral to the Psychiatry Access Clinic (PAC) after the completion of a thorough evaluation of your mental health needs.

What can I expect the first time I call?

We understand that explaining your situation can be uncomfortable. Please understand that helping you is our top priority and we will make the experience as reassuring and stress-free as possible.

Questions a mental health professional asks you may include: What prompted you to call today? How long has this been going on? Have you ever had treatment for this before? Was the treatment helpful?

Can you require my adult family member to get treatment?

We are unable to require anyone to participate in therapy with us. However, we can talk with you about how to approach your loved one and encourage them to seek help.

Can I require my child to receive treatment?

Parents and legal guardians have the authority to bring their child in for treatment. However, therapy will only be effective if the child is willing and able to participate. Our therapists are happy to talk to children at their first appointment about how therapy works to try to ease some of their anxiety about meeting with a therapist.

Please contact us at 303-617-2300 with any additional questions.
