Colorado has the ninth highest suicide rate in the country and ranks 43rd for overall mental wellness. Luckily, more and more Colorado-based organizations are taking on the state’s mental health challenges and investing in creative new solutions for care.

Join us as we kick off the second year of a series of free mental health lectures sponsored by Boulder Community Health Foundation, Mental Health Partners, Boulder Rotary and Boulder Valley Rotary. Our four-part series, “Elevating Mental Health," explores new strategies for enhancing the mental health care of Coloradans.

FIRST LECTURE
Emerging innovations in mental health care

Join Matt Vogl, MPH — co-founder of CU Anschutz’s National Mental Health Innovation Center — as he looks beyond current treatments and describes how virtual reality and other new technologies have the potential to make mental health services better and more accessible to everyone. He’ll then discuss strategies for engaging non-traditional mental health professionals in the prevention and treatment of mental illness.

When: Monday, Feb. 18, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Boulder Jewish Community Center, 6007 Oreg Ave. (Near the intersection of Cherryvale and Arapahoe)
