Kids living in Colorado can take advantage of up to six free mental health sessions through the I Matter program.
Mental health challenges in children across Colorado are widespread, and the pandemic has increased feelings such as sadness and hopelessness in kids. In response to this mental health crisis, the State of Colorado has launched the I Matter program to provide access to three free therapy sessions for youth in Colorado.
- All Colorado youth ages 18 or younger—or 21 and younger if receiving special education services—are able to receive free services.
- Youth 12 and older can sign up for counseling sessions without a parent or guardian’s consent.
- Youth and their parents can visit the platform at IMatterColorado.org to take a confidential online survey about their mental health and schedule sessions with a licensed therapist, primarily via telehealth.
- A Spanish language version of the program can be found at YoImportoColorado.org, and the program has clinicians who can provide sessions in Spanish.
- If you have general inquiries about the program, please email [email protected].

College Plans Sidetracked by the Pandemic?
Finish your education, at no cost to you, with a Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI) Grant
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many students either paused their college enrollment or delayed plans to attend. To help Colorado students complete their degree and get back to work, Front Range Community College is now offering two grant opportunities at no cost to participating students. These grants help students re-enroll and pay for the rest of their schooling, as well as provide support services, to ensure they can complete their program of study.
The “Finish What you Started” grant is geared towards re-engaging students who have either been out of school for more than two years, or who have applied to the college but did not enroll in classes during the pandemic. Meanwhile, the “Back to Work” grant supports workers displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic, including those who were laid off, lost earnings, had offers rescinded or were unable to enter the workforce due to adverse economic conditions. This program aims to support Coloradans who have been out of school and are now studying in programs aligned with Colorado Top Jobs, including fields such as health care, education, early childhood, and information technology.
To learn more about eligibility and to apply for these grants, visit frontrange.edu/finish. Spring enrollment deadline is January 18, but the program will be available in the summer and fall as well.
