Mental Health Wellness in the Workplace
A Community Resource
Presented by Citywide Banks
All of us in Colorado want a local community that is safe and vibrant. We want our children and loved ones shielded from harm. We want our businesses to thrive to their fullest potential. However, for too many of our neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family, daily life can be an emotional strain. Left untreated, behavioral health issues can have devastating impacts. For employers and coworkers, the impacts go beyond productivity and absenteeism. Citywide Banks is pleased to present this community resource directory and article series, developed with Mental Health Colorado and the Denver Business Journal. Also, Citywide Banks recommends that all companies learn about Mental Health First Aid classes for their employees.

It’s all around us, but it’s easy to ignore. We tell ourselves it won’t affect me, my family, or my friends. The challenge (or blessing) is that all of us are impacted by one another’s mental health. This drives our interactions, relationships, physical health, and, for our local businesses, our productivity. Very simply, we are all in this together, and everyone plays an important role in the vitality of our community’s mental health wellness. It’s the reason why Citywide Banks has been such an active promoter of Mental Health First Aid and other behavioral health campaigns for decades.
Through the support of individual and corporate donors like Citywide Banks, Denver Health is changing the face of how care is delivered to youth with mental health and substance problems. One example is the recent implementation of school-based mental health and substance treatment.
By Andrew Romanoff, Mental Health Colorado
When you’re raised by a social worker and a prosecutor, you hear a lot about mental health. My mother spent her first year in graduate school performing social work at a state mental institution. Her father, a psychiatrist, conducted evaluations at the same facility. But eventually that hospital, like many others around the country, was shut down.

That’s the mission of Mental Health Colorado. Since our founding in 1953, we’ve led the fight to prevent, diagnose, and treat mental health and substance use disorders. Our organization works with lawmakers, state and local agencies, mental health providers, and business groups – among other stakeholders – to remove barriers to care.

Identifying key cost drivers for your business is an absolute necessity. No matter how unique your product or remarkable your service, if you don’t understand the root causes of key costs for your business, you will never reach the scale and success we all envision for our organizations. Address those root causes and boost your bottom line.

What would you do with an extra trillion dollars? That’s the price we pay for depression and anxiety disorders. A recent study by the World Health Organization estimated the impact of mental illnesses on the global economy.
By Karen McNeil-Hill, Colorado Health Foundation
Thousands of Coloradans, from our children to our parents, are struggling with mental health challenges. And these challenges can range from having a down day, or being stressed by work or school, to chronic mental health issues. While mental health is a prominent concern across communities, according to the Mental Health Data Spotlight, there’s a disturbing trend in the rising number of Coloradans who are skipping care because they feel ashamed or embarrassed.
By Eric E. Muenks, PhD. LMHC, University of the Rockies
We’ve come a long way in society toward reducing bias with many groups. Jokes about people of color, people who identify as LGBTs, and similar groups are no longer acceptable, but it’s still acceptable in most circles to make fun of or laugh about persons with mental illness.
By Datjaeda Moore, Colorado Crisis Services
Stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, substance abuse, family crisis. Sometimes the list seems to go on and on. Often people suffering from these matters feel alone with nowhere to turn. The fact is they are not alone. An average of one in four adults and one in 10 children in the United States experiences a behavioral health issue every year. One of the hardest realities is that many will not seek support or get help.
By Mental Health Colorado
One out of every four Coloradans – more than one million in all – experiences a mental health or substance use disorder. Yet most go without the care they need. Mental Health Colorado offers nine screening tools.
Citywide Banks is interested in the long-term relationship and can be flexible to meet the customer's needs. Larger banks don't operate in that manner. It can make a real difference to an organization like our nonprofit.
Why Citywide Banks?
For more than 50 years, Citywide Banks has been family operated and solely focused on Colorado's Front Range community. That has created a unique banking culture that continues to benefit Colorado businesses.About Citywide Banks
