Valentine’s Day is a day all about love - not just romantic love, but the love we have for our friends, our families, and ourselves! You don’t have to be in a romantic relationship to feel loved, worthy, and appreciated on this holiday. Self-love is just as important. Self-love is just as valuable.
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.
