Jefferson Center for Mental Health
Jefferson Center for Mental Health helps to bring hope for a brighter future for thousands of community members who struggle with mental health challenges. As the community nonprofit mental health center serving Jefferson, Gilpin and Clear Creek counties, Jefferson Center serves people throughout its three-county area with over 400 staff at over 20 locations, in addition to working in schools, nursing homes, senior centers and other community settings. Center staff has expertise in numerous areas including children and family issues, adults with serious mental illness, suicide prevention, early intervention, juvenile justice, and trauma treatment. Jefferson Center offers a full continuum of specialized behavioral health services for every age, including wellness services and community classes. Jefferson Center targets those most in need: last year, 85% of clients served had incomes below $10,000, and 72% had serious mental illness or other disability.
