Health Solutions is a non-profit community health center serving individuals of all ages in Pueblo, Las Animas, and Huerfano counties. Services provided include primary care medicine, behavioral health services, substance abuse recovery, DUI services, family counseling, and school-based therapy. Upwards of 80% of clients we see are poverty level and low-income. Health Solutions’ innovative crisis program has partnered with local law enforcement and works to prevent and deescalate behavioral health crises in our communities.
Among our many services, The Learning Center (TLC) has grown into a great community resource, allowing participants opportunities to inspire health and wellness in their own lives while connecting with nature. The classes we are able to offer are free and encompass horticulture practices that promote healthy and sustainable living by teaching gardening, harvesting, and cooking techniques that give participants knowledge so they may adopt these practices in their lives.
Our community recently experienced an adolescent suicide crisis that has left a large impact and call for resources in suicide prevention. Health Solutions is one of the only resources for suicide prevention in our community. Our Zero Suicide program and efforts to train all staff on suicide prevention allows us to offer the best possible care for those in need and are a necessity in our community.
We have made it our mission to serve the underserved. Health Solutions exists to assist those in need of healthcare services who require expert care to support recovery and to successfully achieve their healthcare goals.
