Grand Junction, CO – School District 51 and Mesa County Public Health would like to remind all parents, students, and staff of the mental health resources available in Mesa County, particularly when students are about to spend more than two weeks away from their usual support systems at school, including counselors. 

The school district and MCPH together sent a letter to all D51 parents and staff today that reminds them of the many free, confidential resources available to people of all ages around the clock at any time of the year. The letter is accompanied by a video created by Central High School students to bring awareness to suicide prevention resources. The video is also on Facebook and YouTube.

Please join us in reminding Mesa County residents that there is always help available by posting, printing, sharing, and airing the following contact information.
