Oct. 6, 2022 - The CWDC State Youth Council sponsored 14 scholarships for students age 18-25 to attend the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council's (CBHC) 2022 Annual Behavioral Health Training Conference. The conference took place at the end of September in Breckenridge, and the scholarship opportunity was extended to students interested in the behavioral health field.

The 14 students who were selected for the scholarships not only attended the full three-day conference on behavioral health, but were also able to expand their education and network with behavioral health professionals. The scholarship also included access to all conference activities, three nights of complimentary hotel accommodations, and the opportunity to be paired with one of the Colorado Community Mental Health Center's (CMHC) staff through mentorship. The students met with and were mentored by CMHC's staff who work across the behavioral health continuum. 

Thank you to CBHC and CMHC for the support of our student scholarship recipients!
