Over one million people in Colorado are in need of behavioral health services. Based on the public testimonies from hundreds of people across the State, there are numerous barriers to access to behavioral healthcare. The current systems are described by individuals as having inconsistent quality, cultural disparities, challenging access, poor accountability, unaffordable to many, disconnected, and difficult to navigate. The Colorado Behavioral Health Administration, teams are devoted advocates of whole-person health - a concept that is  uniquely defined by each person as they navigate their individual lived experiences.
