Jefferson Center for Mental Health is the not-for- profit community mental health center serving Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin counties since 1958. Our mission is to promote mental health and provide quality mental health services for persons with emotional problems and/or serious mental illness. We are partners with our community, working together to create a place that fosters mental health and supports those with mental h ealth challenges.
Our vision for the future is a community in which there is no stigma, no lack of resources and no barriers to mental health care, where recovery from mental illness is not only possible but probable and individuals with mental health problems live satisfying, contributing and hopeful lives.
Our services are provided through numerous clinical locations in our three county service area, in addition to schools, nursing homes, senior centers and other partner locations throughout our community. Jefferson Center for Mental Health has an ability to pay policy, which is based on income, number of dependents, and availability of other funding sources for this purpose. Our program supporters provide an invaluable contribution to what we do.
We also provide free suicide prevention activities, trainings, & resources for providers to youth and young adults aged 10-24 in Jefferson, Clear Creek, & Gilpin Counties.
I see you're practicing with NING. There is definitely room for collaboration. I am working a couple of exciting projects now and would love to get together to see what we can do together. Your youth age range is about the same as ours (9-24 for us). We have a new drama program that will be released in the Spring that might change that demographic to include younger ages.
