Castle Pines Mayor, Tera Radloff, signed a formal proclamation designating May 2021 to be Mental Health Awareness Month in Castle Pines.

The proclamation acknowledges that mental health is essential to our overall health, and the importance of attending to mental health has become even more pronounced during the COVID-19 pandemic, which not only negatively impacted many people’s mental health but has also created barriers to treatment. Thus, the proclamation urges all citizens to work together to raise awareness and understanding of mental illness, reduce stigma and discrimination, and promote appropriate and accessible services for all people with mental illnesses now and in the future.
