Celebrating May is Mental Health Month

As we celebrate May as Mental Health Month, CBHC would like to thank Vincent Atchity, CEO of Mental Health Colorado, Dr. Carl Clark, CEO of Mental Health Center of Denver, Michelle Barnes, Executive Director of CDHS, Lieutenant Governor Diana Primavera, and Adam Weimer for participating in the annual May is Mental Health Month Proclamation.

This year the proclamation took place via a virtual platform thanks to our annual host, Mental Health Colorado, and the theme was "Healing Together". Each participant made remarks about how mental wellbeing affects us all, and many commented on their personal experiences dealing with mental wellness both during the pandemic and throughout their lives. We would like to thank Lieutenant Governor Primavera for reading the proclamation.

You can watch the brief and lovely ceremony below.
