Pro Bono Counseling & Referral Program

Solutions for difficult times

Valuable Services...Invaluable Results 

Since 1986, Mental Health America of Colorado's Pro Bono Counseling & Referral Program has
provided referrals to free counseling services with licensed mental health professionals. Services are available to people who meet income eligibility and are an individual, family or couple who have:

  • requested help but cannot afford to access it;
  • short-term therapeutic need (6-10 sessions) from a therapist in private practice focused on depression, anxiety, stress, family/relationship problems or grief and loss
  • no health insurance or mental health insurance coverage. 
Short term counseling is available for:
  • Depressionclinica
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and Loss
  • Issues related to unemployment

The Program works in two ways:

  • Placing mental health volunteers at partner nonprofit agencies to provide free mental health services to clients and staff.

Interested in Volunteering with the Program?
If you are a licensed clinician or a Master's-level graduate working toward licensure, share your mental health expertise at one of our 30 host site agencies and bring hope to children, families, and seniors who are low-income or experiencing homelessness, and who would otherwise not receive mental health services.
