"Self-love is a complex practice of forgiveness and acceptance. It means showing your body, mind, and soul love. It doesn’t mean that you’ll only have good days from now on, and it doesn’t mean that you will always feel uplifted. It simply means making a commitment to yourself and making an effort to combat self-negativity."
Through education and advocacy, the Colorado Mental Wellness Network seeks to provide opportunities for individuals to improve the quality of their lives, give back to the community through meaningful roles, and to change the perceptions of behavioral health.
We are the first ever peer-run behavioral health organization to offer Peer Support Professional training! Our 80-hour curriculum, which was developed with the support of the International Association of Peer Supporters, meets all Colorado and SAMHSA Core Competencies. We are also an approved trainer if you plan to take the IC&RC Certification Exam through the Colorado Providers Association.
We support our community by providing drop-in peer support at select locations throughout Denver Metro, free of charge. Our Peer Pathways to Wellness program is trail-blazing: we practice peer support without clinicians onsite.
Advocacy and Leadership
To change the conversation about behavioral health and substance use conditions, we first need to speak up. Whether at the policy-making table, in legislative sessions, at doctor’s appointments, to your friends and family, or in the media, we need your voice to represent the peer movement.
