Mind Springs Health launches foundation

Roger Sheffield

Mind Springs Health has launched a foundation to support behavioral health programs and services in Western Colorado.

Roger Sheffield, president of Mind Springs Foundation, said the launch of the foundation coincides with an increase in demand for mental health services in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. Substance use and addiction are on the rise as well.

“As more Coloradoans are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, increased anxiety, addiction and other issues, Mind Springs Health will continue to provide both in-person therapy as well as telehealth services to those in need of behavioral health services,” Sheffield said.

Gifts to Mind Springs Health and West Springs Hospital in Grand Junction will be directed through the foundation to offer an easier process for donors.

However, donors can still designate where their contributions are directed — whether that’s the West Springs psychiatric hospital, the newly constructed Women’s Recovery Center in Clifton or one of the 12 outpatient offices Mind Springs operates in a 10-county region of the Western Slope.

“I couldn’t be more proud to support the Mind Springs Foundation, both financially and as a board member,” said Glen Jammaron, president of Alpine Bank and inaugural chairman of the Mind Springs Foundation Board of Directors.
