Partnering to improve quality of life as a nonprofit organization dedicated to mental health and wellness


Mental Health Partners began in 1962 as a clinic, received nonprofit 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 our surrounding communities, with multiple locations in Boulder, Broomfield, Longmont and Lafayette; and shared locations with primary care physicians in additional communities.

Mental Health Partners has a 24/7/365 Walk-In Center at 3180 Airport Rd., Boulder, for immediate assistance with a mental health crisis. Individuals using the crisis center do not need to be area residents or clients--anyone may use this center. Mental Health Partners also has 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, more than 60,000 individuals suffer with a form of mental illness. During 2015, 16,300 clients received clinical care and additional community outreach included 6,000 clients served in community-based programs and 34,500 individuals participated in presentations, education or training. In 2015, 51% of those served were women and 49% were men. While most clients identify as white, 11% of those served identifiy as multiracial and 9% identify as Hispanic.
