Ways to Give

Each year, one in four adults are affected by a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. These people are your co-workers, your neighbors and your family members. When you give to Building Sanctuary | Rebuilding Lives, you’re contributing to so much more than a psychiatric hospital – you are investing in your community’s mental health. We thank you for your interest in supporting this much needed expansion of mental health care in the mountain towns of Colorado.
