Supporting, guiding, and connecting the community and individuals in times of crisis.

First Responder Wellness Partner Therapists

Routt County Crisis Support and its Peer Support program has a relationship with many amazing mental health providers in our community.

Thanks to private donations and financial support from the City of Steamboat Springs and Routt County, members of the Routt County Emergency Services and their immediate local family members are able to receive clinical therapy to provide mental health assistance for up to five sessions AT NO COST TO THE 1st RESPONDER.

This is an opportunity to work with a vetted clinician who uses a trauma-informed approach, located in Routt County, with no 800 number to call or EAP to go through.

Through the Routt County Peer Support Program, you can access any of these therapists. For information or to contact a team member, please reach out by logging onto the Peer Support Team Portal on this website or email the Routt County Peer Support Team Coordinator at

You can do this anonymously.
