The Castle Rock Police Department is gathering mental health organizations together for A Rally of Hope on Wednesday, Sept. 13.
The community is invited to browse the many booths, meet with providers throughout the Denver metro area, collect resources and visit with certified therapy animals from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Festival Park, 300 Second St.
Now in its fourth year, CRPD began the rally as a way to highlight Suicide Prevention Awareness month and the many local resources available to assist individuals with mental health. The event has now grown to more than a dozen participants to include therapy offices, counseling centers, rehabilitation facilities, youth organizations, certified therapy animals and the Police Department.
“In addition to these nonprofit and private companies, the Castle Rock Police Department’s Community Response Teams and School Resource Officer-therapy dog duos will be in attendance,” said Officer Tom O’Donnell. “This also gives us the chance to inform the community about the Police Department’s resources when it comes to calls for service involving mental health.”
A Rally of Hope is free to attend. To learn more about CRPD’s Community Response Teams, please visit CRgov.com/Police.
