Mental Health First Aid Colorado provides coordinated and strategic leadership, critical infrastructure, and the necessary implementation supports to facilitate the statewide growth of both adult and youth Mental Health First Aid.
We are a coalition driven by community non-profit organizations across Colorado and various state agencies, with leadership from the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council.
The backbone of MHFA Colorado is a growing network of instructors that are trained to inspire public understanding and involvement through teaching the signs and symptoms associated with mental health and substance abuse issues, and in turn normalize the conversation about mental health while combating stigmas.
Colorado has a unique and valuable approach to implementing MHFA that brings together consumer advocates, healthcare providers, state agencies, educators, criminal justice professionals, first responders and statewide associations to serve as a formal MHFA Colorado Advisory Committee.
