UCHealth dedicates more than $100 million for behavioral health care
Earlier today, UCHealth announced a significant investment that will bolster behavioral health care for patients throughout our state.Office of the Chancellor Sep 4, 2019
This forward-looking investment by UCHealth complements the efforts of CU Anschutz and Children’s Colorado to address mental health needs. Last fall, Children’s Colorado teamed with our Department of Psychiatry to launch Partners for Children’s Mental Health (PCMH), a statewide network of individuals, organizations and agencies committed to helping kids get the right mental health, at the right time, within their own community.
Taken in combination with the efforts of so many units of the university – including the Department of Psychiatry, the National Mental Health Innovation Center, the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center – we are making progress toward reducing the harmful stigma that too-often keeps those in need of quality mental health care from seeking it.
Our faculty have the expertise and resources to make a transformative impact on people’s lives. Together with our clinical partners, we will accelerate the pace of change in behavioral health care, and bring high-quality, integrated care to more of the millions of patients cared for each year.
