Long-time Mental Health Center of Denver CFO retires after numerous projects – The Denver Post

Long-time Mental Health Center of Denver chief financial officer Forrest Cason will retire this month, leaving a legacy that includes the region’s largest adult mental health center.

Cason counts the opening of the Recovery Center as one of his most satisfying projects, though he helped secure financing for the new Dahlia Campus for Health & Well-Being in northeast Denver and the supportive-housing Sanderson Apartments in southwest Denver.

He has served as chief financial officer for the community mental health center for nine years.

The Dahlia center in Park Hill brought mental health care for children and adults, as well as an on-site urban farm, to one of the most needy and grocery store-barren areas of the city.

“He will be greatly missed as we remember all that he has done for our organization and the community,” CEO Carl Clark said in an e-mailed statement. “His efforts have secured the Mental Health Center of Denver’s financial sustainability and positioned us for continued growth.”
