We are pleased to announce The Kempe Center’s executive director, Dr. Kathryn Wells, has been selected to join the Children’s Behavioral Health Subcommittee of the newly created Colorado Behavioral Health Task Force.

The Colorado Behavioral Health Task Force, led by the Colorado Department of Human Services, will work to create a statewide plan of action for Colorado’s behavioral health system in order to provide each and every Coloradan with behavioral health needs high-quality care in a timely manner.

Dr. Wells will be working alongside 25 other members of the Children’s Behavioral Health subcommittee to establish a plan for Colorado in its administration of care and management of children’s behavioral health. Through this, the subcommittee will be improving the future outcomes for children requiring advocacy and behavioral health care.

A big congratulations to Dr. Wells! We are fortunate to have representation from The Kempe Center setting the roadmap to improve Colorado’s current behavioral health system.
