Mission, Vision, Values


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; and share locations with primary care physicians in additional communities.


It is estimated, that of the 360,000 residents of Boulder and Broomfield counties, more than 60,000 individuals suffer with a form o f mental illness. During 2015, MHP provided clinical care to 16,300 clients, 6,000 were served in community-based programs and 34,500 individuals participated in presentations, eduction or training.

“After my dad died, I missed him so much that some days I couldn't stop crying. Still, I didn't think I could afford grief counseling, until I met with the financial team at MHP. I realized there were a lot of affordable options and began receiving support. These days, I still miss my dad, but I am back to living my life.”
"I've always been the strong one in my family so I couldn't tell them I was feeling so overwhelmed it was becoming hard for me to get up in the morning. My care team at MHP was not only confidential and discreet, they gave me the tools to express how I feel to those closest to me. Now, I am closer than ever to my family and the strongest I've ever been.”
“Since I could remember, I have experienced depression and anxiety. Ignoring my symptoms and "getting by" was not creating a high quality of life for me. When I found MHP, I found help. Now, I have a supportive care team that puts me first, which allows me to put my mental health first. My life is happier and I am more optimistic for my future.”
