Mental Health Partners’ story begins in 1962, when it opened as a mental health clinic serving Boulder County residents. In 1964, we received our non-profit status and became a federally designated comprehensive community mental health center in 1971. Since then, we have expanded to meet the growing needs of our surrounding communities, with multiple locations in Boulder, Broomfield, Longmont and Lafayette; and share locations with primary care physicians in additional communities.
