Additional emotional support available
As information about the cause of the Marshall Fire is released, this may trigger many deep emotions and have a significant impact on your emotional well-being. Although we have all been anticipating this report for some time, it is important to be aware of how you are feeling and to make sure your emotions do not become overwhelming. Many mental/emotional health partners have provided services throughout the recovery process. Today, and in the coming days and weeks, many mental/emotional health partners are providing in-person events in our community. You can find the full details on the county’s website.
If you feel that you need additional support, professional assistance continues to be available:

Additionally, there are many things you can do to protect the emotional well-being of yourself and others.
The cause of the fire may provide closure for some, while more anguish for others. Let’s continue to offer support to one another and come together as a community to heal.
