The Colorado Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) launched a new care directory called OwnPath today, providing an accessible, transparent experience for all people in Colorado seeking behavioral health care and services.
As of July 16, 2022, Colorado and the rest of the United States are using the 988 dialing code, a new, easy-to-remember three-digit number for call (multiple languages), text, or chat (English only) that connects people to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (Lifeline), where compassionate, accessible care and support is available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress.
On Friday, July 1 from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm we celebrated the official launch of the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) at our Virtual Community Launch Event & Press Conference!
You can watch a recording of the event on the BHA's YouTube channel.
The event was unique, beginning with a meditation and movement session and ending with a dance party because we recognize that we have to show up authentically and in line with our values as we build trust in a reimagined system.
