Despite the dire economic situation and strong partisan politics brought out by an election year, CBHC Members and the people we serve have many successes to celebrate. Colorado will move forward with reforms to the healthcare system, service integration, and assistance to people who have mental health and substance abuse disorders involved in the criminal justice system. The support and leadership from the Governor's office, the Joint Budget Committee, and other Legislators helped mental health avoid deep funding cuts, but there was still significant impact. The continued involvement of our members with elected-officials truly made a difference. Thank you for all of your ongoing support of our legislative efforts!
