The Mental Health Center of Denver primarily serves the residents of the City and County of Denver. We serve all ages in a variety of settings including our community clinics, Denver Public Schools, primary care clinics, in home, nursing homes, telemedicine, residential treatment sites, court system and crisis services. Our organization accepts all people into treatment regardless of ability to pay and is committed to being a safe, inclusive space for all.
Enriching lives and minds by focusing on strengths and well-being
As the national Center of Excellence in mental health recovery, we envision a future where well-being, recovery and resilience are the expected outcomes and when mental illnesses and addictions can be prevented or cured. We envision a nation where everyone has access to early detection, effective treatment and the supports essential to live, work, learn and participate fully in their communities.
Events and Opportunities
The Mental Health Center of Denver understands and honors the role that culture plays in people’s lives. We strive to create a supportive, inclusive environment that helps people flourish. We focus on enhancing the well-being of the children, families and adults we serve – whether it’s helping them gain mental stability, find a home, stay healthy, go to school, find a job, learn new skills or improve relationships. Working together with our partners, we create opportunities for people to overcome challenges and impact communities. Last year, we provided treatment, prevention, and crisis services to more than 44,000 children, families and adults in Denver. The Mental Health Center of Denver is the national leader in redefining the way mental health is addressed in our community with these innovative programs:
• Dahlia Campus for Health & Well-Being – builds on the strengths of the community and focuses on services identified by neighbors, including a preschool, dental clinic, access to fresh produce and healthy protein and mental health services.
• Emerson St. – supports teens and young adults with activities and services to facilitate connections and enhance their mental health and overall well-being.
• Adult Recovery Services – ensures the adults we serve have the right treatment at the right time, including comprehensive wrap around services.
• 2Succeed – supports adults with education and employment skills to live successful, empowered lives.
