WHAT WE'RE DOING
BUILDING A MOVEMENT PASSING LAWS
We change laws to ensure that mental health is supported across the lifespan
Our grassroots advocates improve the mental health landscape in Colorado
We disentangle mental health and criminal justice, build mental health support for schools, and improve access to care
JOIN THE BRAIN WAVE
Mental Health Colorado is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization and the state’s leading advocate in promoting mental wellness, ending shame and discrimination, and ensuring equitable access to mental health and substance use care.
We develop brains and behaviors at a rapid pace, not fully maturing until as late as our mid-20s. Preventative care and healthy learning environments are central to ensuring healthy minds and bright futures.
Strong, healthy families are vitally important to strong, healthy individuals. Education, childcare, stable housing, meaningful employment, and access to health care are all essential to family well being.
Too often, law enforcement is our first and only response to people’s need for mental health and substance use care. Disentangling mental health and criminal justice will improve health outcomes, save taxpayer dollars, and enhance community well being.
