Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you for your incredible support of the CU Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center Annual Luncheon. Over 300 people came together virtually and raised over $500,000 to support our community! With your support, thousands of individuals and families have the services and care they need to live meaningful and productive lives.
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 Melissa Staten at 303-724-4964 or Melissa.Staten@cuanschutz.edu.
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

Examples of how your donations directly impact our work include:
$1,000 supports one workplace suicide prevention training.
$3,000 supports a scholarship for one person to receive care.
$25,000 supports expansion of workplace suicide into a new industry.
$50,000 supports a part-time community trainer.
$100,000 supports a part-time clinician-researcher in advanced therapeutics.
