More often than not men don't believe that "talking about it" to a counselor will change anything. If you want your spouse to attend counseling with you, ask them to come with you to see me ONE time. You will be surprised when they agree to return. www.cameronlorenc.biz

One of the most notable places in Colorado Springs is the United States Olympic Training Center, including the headquarters of the United States Olympic Committee.1  The economy in the city is primarily driven by the military, high-tech, and tourism.  Fortunately, the city is not completely reliant upon the military for its economic stability due to growth, mostly in the service industry, such as call centers in insurance, support, and financial industries.  This may be largely due to the fact that there are quality college educated workers who want to stay in the city, but not necessarily work in the defense sector.  However, finding work outside of the defense sector remains a little difficult.  This is because there are several large employers in the defense industry located in the city, such as Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Harris Corporation, L-3 Communication, ITT, and Lockheed Martin. However, there have been quite a few high-tech industry organizations set up shop here.  These companies include Hewlett Packard, for example. Additionally, the variance of health facilities is equally as plentiful. The diverse workforce in the city will continue to create growth in the city. 

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs and El Paso County have relatively high rates of domestic violence and other family-related offenses. In 2012, well over 13,000 incidents were reported.2 Agencies that assist couples and families with these issues are always in need of volunteer support. One such organization, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), trains volunteers to advocate on behalf of children who have been abused or witnessed the abuse of others. Those who wish to volunteer as a CASA advocate can call 719-447-9898.3

Community centers located throughout Colorado Springs provide neighborhood-based resources for families in need. Programs that facilitate learning, recreation, and personal growth are offered for residents of all ages. Early childhood and youth programs teach life skills, communication skills, and provide activities to boost self-esteem. Programs for seniors in need are available as well, including food assistance and medical services programs.4

Family Services and Assistance Programs

The City of Colorado Springs maintains working relationships with various non-profit organizations that provide mental health services to the community. Among them is Pikes Peak Family Connections, which specializes in improving parenting methods and family interactions. Their programs are family-centered, meaning all members of the family are involved, and are based on current research. Classes teach personal empowerment, communication skills, empathic awareness, and behavior management skills to all family members. Families that are interested in enrolling in a course can call 719-520-1019.5
