Welcome to Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network
Behavioral health conditions – mental health and addiction – are common AND treatable. After all, some form of mental illness affects one out of four people each year. We are a comprehensive healthcare network specializing in behavioral health services for all ages and levels of need. We welcome all through our doors and are committed to providing efficient access to professional care at an affordable cost. Choosing support for yourself or a family member is an important step, let us begin the journey with you.
Ways to Give
The work that we do changes lives every day. Your support helps us to provide suicide prevention services, mental health crisis care, prevention and educational programs to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
“Etienne saved my life. When I started seeing her I was suicidal; I thought about it every day. I had not been working in 3 years. Her kindness, acceptance, and non-judgmental treatment changed my life. I start working next week and now feel that I am of value to the world.”
Your support matters because:
- More people in Colorado die as a result of suicide than car accidents.
- Twenty percent of our clients report suicide behaviors at their initial appointment.
- 1 in 10 children has a serious mental or emotional disorder that, if untreated, can lead to school failure, physical illness, substance abuse and even suicide.
- Stigma is a major barrier to people seeking treatment. Education and awareness combats stigma and helps build healthier communities.
