Our goal is to make it easy to use our mental health services. That’s why we’ve designed our pre-admission and intake assessment process to be fast and efficient. It includes two steps: completing the necessary paperwork (which can be done in advance by downloading the forms), and meeting with an intake therapist for approximately an hour. Based on that interview, you will be connected to the appropriate mental health services and your care will continue at a later date. 

Community Reach Center is transitioning to open access intakes starting on August 15th, so we are not scheduling intakes right now. Starting on August 15th, you can walk in Monday- Friday between 8a-12p at 8989 Huron St in Thornton. However, if you have urgent needs, please feel free to walk in Monday-Friday between 8a-4p.

Here’s what to expect on your first visit: 

  • Assessment services are provided Monday through Friday, at 8989 Huron St., Thornton, CO 80260 or at 1850 Egbert St, Ste. 200, Brighton, CO 80601. Our office hours for intake our 8am to 4pm. Our last intake is begins no later than 3pm. The first step is to complete our intake forms (Community Reach Center - Intake Forms), . If you would like to check the status of your paperwork please call us at 303-853-3445.
  • When you arrive at the mental health clinic, please check in at the front desk. Please bring an ID, insurance information, and financial information with you.
  • Note: If the client who is being assessed for behavioral health services is under the age of 15, learn more about mental health services for children and youth.
  • In your appointment, you’ll meet with an intake therapist who will ask you questions about emotional or behavioral health issues that are causing you concern. Based on your responses, you will be connected with a Community Reach Center location, program, and/or mental health therapist that can best meet your needs. The interview with the intake therapist takes between an hour and 90 minutes.


Taking advantage of our adult and senior mental health services is a great first step toward better mental and emotional health. We look forward to helping you get started.
