What does STAR stand for and what does it do?

STAR stands for Support Team Assisted Response. The name refers to a partnership between Arvada Fire and WellPower and our goal of sending the right people to help with crisis related to mental health. 

STAR provides person-centric mobile crisis response to community members who are experiencing problems related to mental health, depression, homelessness, or substance use issues. The community support team provides a broad range of no-cost services such as crisis assessment and referral services, counseling, resource navigation and social services, and transportation to alternative destinations such as a crisis center if needed.
