Mental Health Partners’ story begins in 1962, when it opened as a mental health clinic serving Boulder County residents. In 1964, we received our non-profit status and became a federally designated 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; in addition to sharing locations with primary care physicians in other communities.
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. As a community 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we do not discriminate against, or deny services to, any individual due to their race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, religion, creed, political beliefs, marital status, pregnancy, or military status.
