Over 100,000 people live in Boulder, Colorado1, surrounded by the breathtaking natural landscape. Nestled in Boulder Valley, the city is located at the junction of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains. The Flatirons are a local symbol of the area and line the foothills of the mountains. Boulder sits more than 5,400 feet above sea level and welcomes thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy the scenery and outdoor events, such as the Polar Bear Plunge and the annual Naked Pumpkin Run.

 

Mental Health Statistics
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reported that Boulder County adults experienced an average of 2.9 days of poor mental health every month, and nearly 96% of area residents felt satisfied with their lives between 2008 and 20102. Of all women, 10.7% experienced depression or hopelessness after giving birth. For the years of 2008 and 2010, 14.1% of parents reported having a child under the age of 14 with a mental or emotional health problem. Across the county, the rate of hospitalization for mental health concerns was 2100 per 100,000 residents, and the rate of hospitalization for suicide attempts was 47 per 100,000 adults between 2009 and 20113.

 

Mental Health Services for All
Boulder County offers a variety of services to meet the mental health needs of its residents. Caregivers of elderly residents and disabled individuals can receive educational information, support, and respite services. Parenting and pregnancy classes are offered to residents to help them with education relating to family planning and positive parenting. The county also provides sexually transmitted disease and HIV prevention and treatment services.

 

The county focuses strongly on ensuring that adequate care and protection is provided for its youngest and most vulnerable residents. Services for children include adoption, foster care, therapy, child-protection services, life skills, teen education, abuse intervention and prevention, and special sexual abuse therapy for victims of childhood sexual abuse4.

 

Substance abuse prevention and treatment is another major goal of the city and the county. To combat this issue, the Alcohol Diversion Program was designed to educate young adults and teens about the dangers of binge drinking. Participants are identified for assistance and are taught how to get help for themselves or for friends with substance abuse issues. The county offers both inpatient and outpatient detoxification services to those with substance use problems5.

 

Young adults are given a wide array of outlets and resources to help them with any issues they may be facing. The services geared to transition-age residents include the Health Youth Alliance, the Teen Mentoring Program, pregnancy prevention, school-based behavioral prevention and intervention programs, and the Open & Affirming Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Support (OASOS) for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning (LGBTIQ) youth6. OASOS provides resources for teens and young adults that include education, guidance, advocacy, and support. Recognizing the need for similar services for older LGBT residents, the county offers Rainbow Elders through the Boulder County Aging Services department. Focused on providing support for this segment of the population, Rainbow Elders gives aging LGBT adults an opportunity to connect, socialize, and become empowered so that they can pursue the mental health services they need7.
