Larimer County Behavioral Health Services (BHS) relies on input and expertise from advisory groups, each representing a valuable perspective on behavioral health in Larimer County. The groups define the annual priority areas for grant funding awarded through the Impact Fund.

BHS is seeking new members for three advisory groups: Behavioral Health Policy Council, Technical Advisory Committee, and a proposed Consumer Advisory Committee.

Behavioral Health Policy Council (BHPC) is made up of eight elected officials and six at-large members from each county municipality. The purpose of this council is to foster regional coordination and cooperation in matters related to behavioral health services and programs available to county residents. BHS is seeking to fill two vacant at-large member seats for the council.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is made up of professionals in the field of behavioral health and includes therapists, care providers, educational instructors, support program managers, and non-profit administrators. Members of this committee work together to identify gaps in available behavioral health care and determine priority areas for BHS grant funding. BHS is seeking 10 members to serve on this committee.

The proposed Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) is a new advisory group which will be made up of individuals with personal experience navigating mental health and substance use programs and systems. Members of this committee will share their experiences, provide advice, and make recommendations to the BHPC. Members also receive compensation for their participation in monthly meetings and ongoing discussions related to county behavioral health initiatives. Input from this advisory group will help determine funding priorities for the grant program and provide insights into future initiatives for the department. BHS is seeking 15 members to serve on this committee.

Those interested in applying to participate in the advisory groups must complete an online application and participate in an interview process. Applications will be accepted from Sept. 1 to Sept. 27, 2020. To learn more about Behavioral Health Services, please visit https://larimer.org/behavioralhealth.
