Key Mental Health Bill Passes in Colorado Legislature
Governor Hickenlooper's recent initiative for the enhancement of behavioral health crisis response services statewide in Colorado has been passed through the Colorado legislature with bi-partisan support. MCS could not be more pleased to see State involvement toward a vision and mission that MCS adopted at its foundation some five years ago.
From the MCS perspective, the system that will address the effectiveness of this bill will be based on Guiding Principles that include but are not limited to "no wrong door", use of peer specialists, referrals to the right level of care at the right time, and assistance and support for families.
Read the Senate Bill 13-266, or contact us to become involved with efforts toward this systemic development which could bring accessible solutions to those in our community with mental health and substance abuse needs.
Now, Colorado's mental health and substance abuse treatment providers can help their clients, even on weekends or when they're out-of-office. Click here to learn.
