Mental Health Services
RET. U.S. Army
Healthcare leaders have declared that Colorado Springs and El Paso County are in the midst of a “mental health crisis”. We all likely know a friend, family member, or colleague who is struggling through their own fight with mental health. When we vote YES to end the prohibition of recreational cannabis sales in Colorado Springs, it will bring millions in tax revenue home that will be dedicating to ensure our city has the resources it needs to take on our community’s mental health crisis.
Ending our Local Crisis
El Paso County led the state in suicides in 2021. Additionally, the 2021 Colorado Health Access Survey showed that 35% of El Paso County residents 16 or older experienced a decline in mental health during the year. In our city, first responder resources and stretched to the max responding to mental health emergency calls while mental health services in general remain underfunded.
Bringing recreational cannabis tax dollars back home will provide millions of dollars annually to take on the fight against the mental health crisis in our community. These dollars could expand first responder services, increase the number of service providers in our city, and ensure folks who are in a dire time of need receive life-saving care when they need it.
Vote YES to end the prohibition of recreational cannabis sales to ensure our city has the resources it needs to take on the city’s mental health crisis.
