Submit a complaint to the BHA




Read the BHA's grievance policy

The BHA will accept and investigate all grievances and critical incident reports that it receives in a timely and effective manner. Furthermore, C.R.S. 27-50-108 (HB22-1278) requires the BHA, in collaboration with other state agencies and ombudsman offices, to stand up a comprehensive behavioral health system grievance resolution process that meets the needs of all Coloradans, by July 1, 2024. In order to develop a plan, the Agencies will work together to identify the relevant rules and laws related to grievances in order to identify barriers and policy recommendations. This BHA policy does not supersede other State Agency Grievance policies, but exists concurrently and in coordination with such policies.

Grievance Project Stakeholder Feedback

If you have feedback on current processes, please provide it via written comment through the anonymous BHA Grievance Stakeholder Feedback Form or by email at the address linked below.

You can also set up an individual or small-group virtual office hour conference with our BHA staff to discuss any feedback you may have for the grievance system. To do so, please email or call using the information below.
