A partnership between Community Reach Center and Broomfield Pediatrics will allow the community health center to open a new outpatient location.
Community Reach is scheduled to open its new location on the second floor the Broomfield Health and Human Services Building on Oct. 7. The building is located at 100 Spader Way in Broomfield.
The center is hosting an open house at 3:30 p.m. Oct. 4 at the new location for residents and neighbors to learn about Community Reach programs and services.
The new center will offer outpatient counseling, substance abuse treatment and options for people suffering from persistent mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
The expansion will help more people get help if they need it, Community Reach Center Chief Executive Officer Rick Doucet said.
“We know that one in four Americans experiences a mental health challenge each year and less than half receive treatment,” Doucet said. “This is partly due to an insufficient amount of mental health professionals in the individual’s community, and partly due to a lack of awareness that those resources are even available.”
The center will take appointments Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Broomfield location. Individuals seeking to begin treatment at the Broomfield office can call 303 853-3500.
Community Reach now offers both in-patient and outpatient programs at 14 locations throughout Adams County and the northern metropolitan area.
“Community Reach is excited to expand services into the City and County of Broomfield, to make a significant contribution toward the community’s awareness about treatment options and enhance the public’s understanding of mental health challenges,” Doucet said.
The center began a partnership with Broomfield Pediatrics in September, enabling the primary care practice to provide on-site behavioral health evaluations for young patients as needed. A Community Reach mental health provider works at the office at least one day each week, taking mental referrals, according to Dr. Nancy Greer, pediatrician/owner and Medical Director of Broomfield Pediatrics.
“In this way, we hope to make counseling and mental health services more easily available and accessible to all of our patients and their family as well as our community,” she said.
