United Way of Larimer County (UWLC) is excited to partner with Fort Collins Museum of Discovery(FCMoD), SummitStone Health Partners, and OtterCares & OtterBox to bring Self-care Kits to local frontline behavioral health providers in our community and
We’re calling all volunteers & community members to support the assembly of Self-care Kits. Mental and behavioral frontline workers have an incredibly important role throughout the pandemic. This volunteer opportunity allows you to thank them for their service.
In early May, FCMoD will distribute the Self-care Kits to local hospitals and clinics, including SummitStone Health Partners, UC Health, Banner Emergency Department, and more.
While millions of Americans socially isolate from friends and family throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, mental and behavioral health professionals continue to provide people with the support needed during difficult times.
Last year, with generous community support, the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery brought a new and important special exhibition, Mental Health: Mind Matters, to the Larimer County community. This groundbreaking exhibition aimed to build a greater understanding of the importance of mental health while creating a safe space for important conversations around mental illness. During the run of the exhibit, FCMoD partnered with organizations leading in the behavioral health space, including SummitStone Health Partners, to connect visitors with local resources and programming to support the experience. The exhibit was a resounding success, with over 9,800 community members gaining free access during the four-month run.
Following the exhibit, FCMoD and SummitStone Health Partners wanted to keep the conversation around mental health alive and strong in our community. Together with United Way of Larimer County, this volunteer project was created to give recognition to the mental and behavioral health care workers in our community.
