Mission Statement

To advance the understanding, prevention, and treatment of mental illness, including substance use disorders, through education, advocacy, and research.

Organization History

The Colorado Psychiatric Foundation is the charitable arm of the Colorado Psychiatric Society. In 2008, CPS established a separate 501(c)(3) Foundation to advance the understanding, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders through education, advocacy, and research. Past projects have included providing funding for honorariums to authors published in the Mental Health Stories Project and giving small grants for programs at other organizations. For example, the foundation funded a collaboration between the Stout Street Clinic and Urban Peak to target services for unhoused youth between 16 and 24.


"Today your letter arrived about receiving an honorarium for my essay . . . I am so grateful that you gave me this opportunity to feel that I am advocating for myself and those who have had similar experiences. I feel like my voice was heard and I can't describe how precious a feeling that is."

"Not only have you given me a very happy Christmas, but also the very healing gift of telling my story!"

"I am elated to have had my essay chosen for your Mental Health Stories essay contest . . . together, we can strengthen our efforts towards bringing forth a more positive, stigma free world"
