Colorado Springs, Colo.. – AspenPointe celebrated and thanked Community Partners at an Appreciation Breakfast on Valentine’s Day. The event was held at the AspenPointe Café located at Citizens Service Center where breakfast was catered by the AspenPointe Café team.

This annual event serves to share gratitude toward AspenPointe’s community partners across El Paso, Park and Teller Counties. As AspenPointe’s mission is rooted in expanding access to mental health services, each community partner plays an integral role in minimizing access barriers to care for AspenPointe clients.

Attendees had the privilege of hearing inspiring stories from two of AspenPointe’s clients, Linda and Travis.  Linda spoke about her experience with AspenPointe’s Creative Expressions program, a service that aims to provide therapeutic relief with art. This program helped Linda heal from trauma she had experienced as a child. Travis courageously shared his journey through the prison system and how AspenPointe’s Culinary Program gave him a sense of purpose and stability through job and life skill development.

“We consider it both a privilege and a tremendous responsibility to work with individuals like Linda and Travis, and to deliver on our mission of providing exceptional behavioral health care to this community, one client at a time,” commented EJ Rickey, Vice-President of Marketing and Communications Strategy.

AspenPointe would like to again thank each community partner that has contributed and continue to make patient experiences a success.
