Update from MHP’s Co-CEOs Regarding Changes to Operations in Response to COVID-19

Dear community partners –

Over the past few days, the COVID-19 public health crisis has evolved rapidly. Since our last message, there has been even more restrictions placed on social distancing, travel and resources, which has impacted almost every aspect of daily life. We recognize it has been a monumental effort for everyone to rapidly adjust to this changing situation and are extremely honored to lead Mental Health Partners (MHP) during this time and be part of the Boulder and Broomfield community.

For over 50 years, MHP has served as a safety net provider, providing essential mental health and addiction recovery services to our community, especially to the most vulnerable populations. Now, more than ever, our responsibility is to continue to fulfill this role so people can receive the appropriate level of care for them and to help them stay out of the Emergency Department. This role is even more necessary during a public health crisis that has placed our Emergency Departments, and entire healthcare system, under enormous strain.

 

However, we are also aware that it is important to follow CDC guidelines to safeguard the health of our staff, clients, and community.  As such, we have implemented several operational adjustments, which are outlined below and have been communicated to the public and clients. We are still accepting new clients via our main phone number (303) 443-8500, with assessment and evaluations being offered via telehealth.

Please share this information with your network and staff. We have also created a page on our website with this information, as well as resources about how to manage mental health and anxiety during this time: www.mhpcolorado.org/covid-19-updates.

Even during this challenging and unprecedented time, our staff continues to embody the foundational characteristics of a community, nonprofit, mission-based organization – strength, expertise and composure. We are humbled to see examples of these characteristic every day. We have also witnessed generosity and collaboration between many community partners and organizations and are deeply grateful to be part of a community that is pulling together for the greater good. Please continue to take care of yourself, and your family. We will be in touch with more updates or you can find them on our website or social media pages.

 

Stay well,
–Jen and Dixie
