Teal Heath attended AspenPointe’s Annual Heroes of Mental Health Luncheon October 13th that recognizes individuals in the Pikes Peak Region who champion mental health and wellness. They can be a driving force in efforts to reduce stigma or a key player in the growth of community programs that treat and fund mental illness, substance use, unemployment and homelessness.
Each year attendees help AspenPointe raise funds for an important health care initiative. Last year, $14,000 was raised to help benefit Mental Health First Aid, an award-winning public education program that helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Thanks to donations, the Mental Health First Aid education program is free to the public.
