      "This was a very effective presentation and helped numerous employees connect to local resources and improve their mental hygiene. We will want to do it again," 2018 Workplace Partner

      "In Aspen we spend so much time talking about and working on our physical and spiritual fitness, but for some reason we completely ignore our mental wellness. Its as if we believe mental illness is reserved for those far removed from us, as if we are too "fit" for that type of thing. I would argue there is a fine and precarious line between mental wellness and illness. It is our duty to all of the parts of ourselves to keep our minds strong. Aspen Strong aims to do just that through ensuring that valley wide there are resources available to each of us that assess and support our mental hygiene, our mental fitness and our mental wellness. We can't be well in our physical and spiritual realms if our mental selves are not part of the equation. We truly are as great as the sum of our parts."

      "Aspen Strong plays an essential role-- increasing awareness of community resources, decreasing stigma, and advocating for the most vulnerable.  Their annual symposium empowers professionals in the community, and their year-round efforts educate and connect people to mental health resources in order to reduce substance abuse, mental health crises, and suicide.  By focusing on mental health hygiene and emotional literacy, as well as supporting the front line professionals, and promoting connections and various resources, Aspen Strong’s commitment to health wellness is inspiring."

      I realized younger in life that it was important to help other people any way I could. I have been involved in many causes that I thought were important, but mental health as dominated my interest. My own mental health struggles led me to a wonderful doctor and through him I started the Aspen Mental Health Fund which lead me to an amazing young woman Christina King. Christina brought the Aspen Strong Foundation idea to me. I was so impressed with her incredible energy and determination to make a difference in the world of mental health that it had become my passion as well. I believe we help many people who desperately need it. We are determined to rid people of the stigma of getting help for mental health issues. I am proud to be involved with Aspen Strong!
