Colorado is reforming its behavioral health system. This transformation is vital to make sure every Coloradan can access the behavioral health care they need when they need it. The Department of Health Care Policy & Financing is working with other state agencies to develop a comprehensive behavioral health safety net. A stronger system of care will help people with severe behavioral health disorders, including individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. This page was created to keep behavioral health providers, advocates, and partners up-to-date on the reform efforts.
