Organization History

Aurora Mental Health Center (AuMHC) is a private, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit community mental health center opened in 1975 to serve the city of Aurora. AuMHC is state-licensed to provide mental health and substance abuse services. It was the winner of the 2010 Eli Lilly Award for Clinical Medicine, has won the annual, national, Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility for four consecutive years and in 2014 won the Colorado Behavioral Health Council's Golden Light Bulb Award for best new program for its Aurora Youth Options program.


"Before I came to Aurora Mental Health Center, I was in and out of the hospital every three or four months. I have a son who, at the times, was about nine years old. I was a single parent and when I came to the Center, I had been in the hospital for about a month. I was pretty hopeless. I really didn't see any future for myself. When I came to the Center I got a new therapist and joined a support group. I have gained joint custody of my son with the help of my therapist, and have started making the road back to a meaningful life. It is so different now. I have had a job for 2 12 years. I am a social worker and giving back. I basically have a productive and meaningful life that I didn't have before." -Susan
