South Denver is proud to be known for its high achieving schools, spacious parks, and lifestyle wellness. Metro Denver is consistently ranked as one of the best and healthiest places to live in the U.S. Yet, according to Mental Health America, 20% of Colorado residents are living with some kind of mental illness - the third-highest rate in the country. Colorado also recently ranked as one of the worst states in providing access and care to those wrestling with mental health. How do we reconcile and bridge this gap? Why as Coloradans do we not include mental health in our discussions on wellness? How do we find a better way forward?
Join us on Wednesday, June 27th at 6:30 PM as we hear from several different experts on these very questions, and dialogue with us as we think through the best way forward together.
