Policy Priorities
Mental Health Colorado works with elected officials, the media, and the general public to shape Colorado’s approach to mental health.
  • Policy Initiative Title 1
    Our work includes promoting universal screening and early detection – and ensuring that schools have the training and resources they need not only to spot the symptoms of mental illness but also to refer students, when appropriate, to skilled professionals. We must also address a critical shortage in the mental health workforce, especially in rural Colorado. And it means integrating the delivery of mental health services into our primary care system – putting a priority on rehabilitation, not simply incarceration. Our policy leadership has won national recognition. Among other achievements:
    • Passage of landmark legislation requiring mental health parity;
    • Development of a statewide crisis response system;
    • Formation of a 24/7 counseling and support service.
    We also play a leading role in convening providers, consumers, and advocates and in incubating new solutions to Colorado’s mental health challenges. We spearheaded the creation of the Behavioral Health Partnership, the Colorado Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, the Colorado Mental Wellness Network, Rocky Mountain Crisis Partners, and the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Colorado, among other organizations.
