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 and Longmont; and shared locations with primary care physicians in additional communities.

Mental Health Partners has a 24/7/365 Walk-In Crisis Center at 1000 Alpine Ave., 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. Annually, Mental Health Partners serves more than 25,000 individuals within all age groups. In 2014, 53.2% of those served were women and 46.8% were men. While most clients identify as white, 15.1% of those served identifiy as multiracial and 9.5% identify as Hispanic.
