Mental Health Center of Denver

About Us

The Mental Health Center of Denver holds diversity and inclusiveness as an integral part of our values, and we honor the role that culture plays in people’s lives. We focus on enhancing the well-being of the people we serve, whether it’s helping them gain mental stability, find a home, stay healthy, go to school, find a job, learn new skills or improve relationships. The Mental Health Center of Denver is the national leader in redefining the way mental health is addressed in our community with these innovative programs:

Dahlia Campus for Health & Well-Being – focuses on services identified by neighbors, including a preschool, dental clinic, access to fresh produce and healthy protein, and mental health services.

Emerson St. for Teens & Young Adults – supports young people by facilitating connections and enhancing their overall well-being.

Adult Recovery Services – ensures the adults we serve have the right treatment at the right time.

2Succeed – supports adults with education and employment skills.

Sanderson Apartments – provides permanent supportive housing and is one of the nation’s only buildings using trauma-informed design principles.

Co-Responder Program – pairs our staff clinicians with the Denver Police Department to get individuals experiencing a mental health crisis into treatment rather than jail.
