Support Team Assisted Response (STAR) Program
Denver Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) is expanding the Support Team Assisted Response (STAR) Program, which has been piloted by the Denver Department of Safety since 2020. The STAR Program deploys Emergency Response Teams that include Emergency Medical Technicians and Behavioral Health Clinicians to engage individuals experiencing crises related to mental health issues, poverty, homelessness, and substance abuse.
To request support from the STAR team, please call 9-1-1 if in Denver, or call the Denver Police Department's non-emergency line at 720-913-2000 and an operator will dispatch the most appropriate, available response.
