Mental Health America of Colorado has created opportunities for all Coloradans to achieve mental wellness. Their programs educate people about mental health conditions, provide outreach to people in need and advocate for improved health care in our state. They exist as a community resource for people seeking information about mental health and as a team player as we collaborate with others to improve health care in Colorado.

MHAC envisions a healthy Colorado free of stigma and discrimination where every person has full access to high quality services for all mental health and substance abuse conditions.
