President and CEO

Mental Health America Of Colorado

Denver, Colorado

The Board of Mental Health America of Colorado (MHAC), the regional affiliate of the national Mental Health of America organization, currently seeks a new President and CEO to take overall responsibility for the organization's consistent achievement of its mission and financial objectives. MHAC creates opportunities for all Coloradoans to achieve mental wellness. Our programs educate people about mental health conditions, provide outreach to people in need and advocate for improved health care in our state. We exist as a community resource for people seeking information about mental health and as a team player as we collaborate with others to improve health care in Colorado.

We envision a healthy Colorado free of stigma and discrimination where every person has full access to high quality services for all mental health and substance abuse conditions.

Strategic Priorities

The Board of MHAC sees several primary areas of emphasis for the organization in the next 3-5 years:

1. Strategic Positioning and Healthcare Reform

We intend to continue our role as the voice of recovery, hope, and optimism. We will continue to be a conduit between the advocacy, education, and provider communities in the effort to integrate mental health fully into the healthcare system.
MHAC will play a vital role in determining how the new healthcare legislation that affects mental health will be applied in Colorado and how best to integrate those programs with physical health programs to provide all consumers with a holistic approach to their healthcare.
