Dear Supporting Friends,

Thank you for your incredible support of the CU Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center Annual Luncheon. Over 460 guests came together in person and together, we raised over $650,000 to support our community! With your support, thousands of individuals and families will have the services and resources they need to help us end the stigma together.

We are continuing to build our capacity to provide mental healthcare. Our center is dedicated to the eradication of stigma associated with mental illness, particularly depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Your support is the fuel for the engine that drives the pioneering mental health treatment, research, and community engagement.

For more information about the CU Johnson Depression Center, to join us for a tour, and to learn more about our work to improve the lives of individuals with mood disorders, please contact Marcus Palas at 720-261-4443 or

We are grateful for your extraordinary partnership and all that you make possible through your support.

With sincere gratitude,
Your Friends at the Johnson Depression Center

If you did not get a chance during the luncheon to support us, you can still make a donation here!
