Welcome to Teletherapy

Mental health matters and that’s why Tri-County Health Network (TCHNetwork) offers teletherapy services to our community members. Teletherapy is the delivery of therapy through a secure, live video connection over the internet – think Skype with a therapist. Teletherapy can take place in the comfort of your own home or through one of our designated site facilities, or enrolled schools. Teletherapy is free for students and staff at participating schools. If you are over the age of 50, the first 6 sessions are free thanks to a grant from the NextFifty Initiative. For all other community members scholarships for teletherapy are currently available thanks to generous donations from community members through Colorado Gives – you can access services for free while donations last!

Contact us today to sign up for services: info@tchnetwork.org or 970-708-7096.
