The grant will support behavioral health services for people with long-term physical disabilities
DENVER, July 12, 2016 — The Chanda Plan Foundation has received a $75,000 grant from the Caring for Colorado Foundation. The one-year grant will support the integration of behavioral health services at the Chanda Plan Foundation, which serves people with long-term physical disabilities.
Behavioral health will be a new service available to Chanda Plan participants at no additional cost or on a sliding scale.
“Our participants have identified behavioral health services as a critical need,” says Chanda Plan Executive Director Chanda Hinton Leichtle. “The trauma, chronic pain, isolation and stress of living with a long-term physical disability can contribute to a range of mental health issues, including depression. With this grant, we’ll be able to integrate behavioral health and primary care to offer this much-needed service to Chanda Plan participants in a way that is accessible, affordable and convenient.”
