Mental Health Colorado plays a leading role in bringing together providers, consumers, advocates, and other groups to develop new solutions that advance mental health in our state. We sparked the creation of the Jefferson Center for Mental Health, the Colorado Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, the Colorado Mental Wellness Network, and Rocky Mountain Crisis Partners, among other entities. Our commitment to collaboration plays a key role in how we approach our work.
