Learn advocacy from the advocates!
We're a grassroots, peer-based mental health advocacy organization in Colorado that is dedicated to improving the lives of people with mental health conditions. Why? Well, because we have them too! That's what we mean by grassroots. We aren't policymakers or politicians, we're just people who want our voices to be heard. And we want yours to be heard too!

The legislative process in Colorado
