U.S. Congressman Jason Crow will be in Douglas County at 1 p.m. Monday, March 20, to announce an award of $629,970 in federal funds to help advance the County’s Mental Health Initiative and the Initiative’s mental/behavioral health continuum of care.
Mental Health is among the top three public health priorities identified in the 2021-2026 Douglas County Public Health Improvement Plan.
Funds will specifically support an Enhanced Model of Service ensuring youth and families accessing crisis services in Douglas County are connected with ongoing, non-crisis, mental/behavioral health treatment.
The formal announcement and check presentation will take place at 1 p.m. at the Philip S. Miller Building, 100 Third Street in Castle Rock. Douglas County Commissioners and mental health service providers will also be present.
All will remain after the announcement to provide details.
The public and media are invited to attend in person or watch a livestream of the event on Douglas County’s YouTube channel.
