Denver, Colorado (June 3, 2021) – Today, LivWell Enlightened Health announced a $57,000 donation to Mental Health Colorado thanks to the generosity of their customers during the ‘Round-Up for Mental Health’ campaign. The funds will support the nonprofit’s efforts to ensure that resources for mental health are a priority for the state, especially in the wake of the global pandemic. Mental Health Colorado works to create access to housing, health care, and other services so that Coloradans of all ages may experience better health outcomes.
“The need for mental health support has never been greater. From the fear of the pandemic to the isolation of lock downs to the ongoing economic uncertainty, the challenges faced by Coloradans young and old has taken its toll,” said Michael Lord, COO, LivWell Enlightened Health. “Providing support for mental health advocacy is one way we can give back to our communities and we are pleased to donate to Mental Health Colorado.”
Earlier this year, LivWell launched the ‘Round Up for Mental Health’ campaign that allowed customers to round up the cost of their purchase and donate. “An enormous thank you is also owed to our customers for their generosity,” continued Lord.
“No Coloradan should have to go without care when it’s needed, and thanks to LivWell and its generous customers, we will continue working to ensure all Coloradans have access to high-quality, affordable mental health and substance use care,” said Mental Health Colorado President & CEO Vincent Atchity. “Thanks to the support of kind Coloradans who care, Mental Health Colorado will continue to pursue its mission to promote healthier minds across the lifespan. We work to pass legislation; change practices in the education, health care, and justice systems; and destigmatize seeking mental health care to make healthier, happier humans all over the state.”
According to Lord, one of LivWell’s core values is giving back to the community, “Giving back has been part of the company’s DNA since it was founded in 2009.” Earlier this year, via the ‘Round-Up’ campaign, LivWell’s customers donated $75,000 to the COVID Relief Fund in Colorado.
LivWell Cares, the philanthropic arm of the company, works closely with the communities in which LivWell operates both as good neighbors and fully involved partners in community development.
