High-quality care that fits, from the start.
Denver spoke. We listened. We must better support access to quality mental health and substance misuse care at the right time.
Provide more people access to care. And care that “fits.”
From first responders to libraries, we need more care providers. And we need more care providers that understand the unique needs of different cultures and communities.
Ensure care providers have what they need to provide high quality care.
Providers and care givers need supports and training to be more effective in their role and to better connect with and meet the needs of people seeking care. More resources are also needed to support self-care and care for others when the system doesn’t.
Improve entry and transition connections.
Quality care starts at the first point of connection. But since service information is often outdated or changes rapidly, people get frustrated and tend to give up on seeking care. Better support through transitions and coordination across providers is needed so people can easily get continuous care.
