My name is Austin (he/him). I was born and raised in the mountains of Colorado in a small town named Gypsum. I now reside in southern Colorado.

I am a suicide survivor that lives with bipolar disorder, anxiety, and PTSD. I am also a person with disabilities and struggle with chronic illnesses. I am excited to join Mental Health Colorado due to my past experiences with mental health, and I want to give a voice to those with similar experiences to let them know they are not alone. I am excited to join others with similar and different experiences in order to build a better future for Colorado.

In my free time I enjoy playing videogames, doing puzzles, and hanging out with my dog and my partner.
