We can’t talk seriously about health without considering mental health and substance use disorders.
CHI engages in efforts to improve the behavioral health system, from assessing needs for substance use prevention and recovery, to evaluating programs pairing police and behavioral health providers, to studying access to mental health care and the impact of current investments. The Colorado Health Access Survey offers insight into mental health and substance use access and trends across the state. We work with organizations that aim to improve behavioral health care and access for all Coloradans.
