        Qualifications

        Mental Health Partners began in 1962 as a clinic, received non-profit status in 1964, and was federally designated as a comprehensive community mental health center in 1971. Since then, we have expanded to meet the growing needs of the community in both counties, with locations in Boulder, Broomfield and Longmont. We are the only agency in Boulder and Broomfield counties that provides comprehensive psychiatric services to county residents regardless of their ability to pay. People served by Mental Health Partners generally do not have access to services in the private sector because they cannot afford to pay the significant fees, and most do not have insurance.
        Mental Health Partners has 24 hour emergency psychiatric services and outpatient offices for infants, children, adolescents, adults, and families. Many programs and services are available including school-based programs, substance abuse treatment, rape crisis counseling, advocacy, and education. Mental Health Partners offers bilingual/bicultural services and an in-house pharmacy.
        It is estimated, that of the 360,000 residents of Boulder and Broomfield counties, over 60,000 individuals suffer with a form of mental illness. This number is only compounded when family, friends, and co-workers are affected by the disabling conditions of a person who is struggling with a mental illness. Annually, Mental Health Partners serves over 17,000 individuals and our Emergency Psychiatric Services Team responds to 10,000 calls. We serve more women than men and thirty-six percent of our clients are multicultural.
