2016 CDHS Summer Planning Tour

The Colorado Department of Human Services is conducting a series of town hall meetings to solicit feedback, comments, and suggestions to help inform the direction of the department and priorities for the coming year. Please join us!

Mental Health Hold Task Force

Gov. John Hickenlooper directed the Colorado Department of Human Services to create a task force to examine issues of concern around mental health holds in Colorado.  In June, CDHS Executive Director Reggie Bicha called for applicants to serve on the task force, and articulated a list of issues for the task force to address.

CDHS annually prepares a performance plan to outline the goals and activities to be undertaken in the coming state fiscal year. Its contents are a reflection of the vision of the Department and the synthesis of the input received from staff, stakeholders and community partners, collected through a series of town hall and staff meetings, webinars and online surveys conducted throughout the summer.
