Sponsorship to the Aspen Strong Foundation is an intricate part of our success. Your gift supports Aspen Strong in our efforts to promote mental hygiene in the Roaring Fork Valley and connect those in need with support. Our efforts are achieved through our online resources and screening tools at, through Hike Hope Heal, supporting the Mental Health Fund, where individuals in need of mental health services will receive subsidized treatment with private practitioners who could otherwise not afford care, and through supporting education and other organizations in our valley doing similar work. Supporting Aspen Strong will help to heal, connect, and unite our valley by improving our access to mental health care and decreasing the stigma of mental illness.

  • Lawrence Altman, CBD Trading & ASF donor.

    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!

  • Ericka Anderson, MA LPC, Trauma Specialized Psychotherapist in Roaring Fork Valley & ASF Provider

    Because of Aspen Strong there is a place to turn to when someone needs help. I am deeply appreciative of their commitment to mental health in our valley.

  • Amanda Friend, Valley Settlement Project (2015 Symposium)

    I am so grateful to the Aspen Strong Foundation for bringing such amazing information and experts to our valley. I walked away from this symposium with a toolbox of strategies for immediate implementation that I use with my students, my children, and myself. I am a better parent, better teacher, and better self after this amazing experience.

  • Christopher May, Forum Phi founding partner and ASF event sponsor

    We felt that mental illness is under-addressed by society and Aspen Strong fills this gap locally. Your mind is an organ like any other and deserves treatment and resources. One single point of contact and coordination is especially helpful for the most in need, the young and the poor.
