Our community safety nonprofits are working tirelessly to provide innovative programs to increase safety for all residents. Advocates of Routt County has increased training for high school students, athletic teams and bartenders on sexual assault. Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide — or REPS — continues to provide key training in how to recognize signs of people considering hurting themselves. Court-Appointed Special Advocates has expanded their case load in Routt County.
There are also new trends in health care in our county to help residents live healthier lives. Phase Based Care, or the ability for a patient to see multiple providers at one visit, makes sense in a small, rural county. The annual Wellness Conference will be held at The Steamboat Grand on Nov. 1 featuring keynote Frank King, the mental health comedian.
