Colorado Behavioral Health Task Force Meeting July 1

The task force will evaluate Colorado's behavioral health system and write a statewide strategic blueprint to reform the system with the goal of allowing every Coloradan experiencing behavioral health needs to receive timely, high-quality services in his or her community.

The Colorado Department of Human Services and Colorado Gov. Jared Polis have announced the members of the newly created Behavioral Health Task Force and its three subcommittees. CDHS tweeted that more than 500 people applied for a position on the task force, which will evaluate Colorado's behavioral health system and write a statewide strategic blueprint to reform the system with the goal of allowing every Coloradan experiencing behavioral health needs to receive timely, high-quality services in his or her community.

There are 100 seats in all on the state task force and the subcommittees -- the State Safety Net subcommittee, the Long-Term Competency subcommittee, and the Children's Behavioral Health subcommittee.

"I am proud to lead this task force so we can urgently work to create a roadmap for behavioral health in our state," CDHS Executive Director Michelle Barnes said. "The 100 citizens we have selected will make a critical difference for people dealing with issues related to mental health and substance abuse. I want to thank everyone that applied and encourage all Coloradans to stay involved, as there is much work to be done."

The first meeting will be July 1. There, the main task force will outline its vision and how it will measure progress toward completing the blueprint by June 2020. There will be opportunities for the public to contribute through town hall meetings and discussions around the state.
