Boulder Strong Resource Center

The #BoulderStrong Resource Center (BSRC) is a place of healing and support for those impacted by the Boulder shooting. The BSRC is open to all and is staffed by knowledgeable, compassionate and caring professionals, including therapists provided by Mental Health Partners.

The center’s trained professionals know that people process grief and trauma differently and on their own timeline. Their goal is to help the community work through the traumatic experience to move forward. Each person’s journey and timetable are different. Some people may need to play with a comfort dog while others may need someone to talk to. The center encourages victims, families, first responders and the Boulder community to seek support when coping with the psychological and emotional effects of the Boulder shooting.

The center is located at 2935 Baseline Road in Boulder. All are welcome.
