April Briefing -- Denver's Co-responder and STAR Programs


April 5 - We will showcase all that is being done by Denver’s behavioral health community in serving mentally ill in the criminal justice system, interrupting the revolving door between interrupted mental health treatment and the jail. Chris Richardson, Associate Director of Criminal Justice Services, Mental Health Center of Denver, and Carleigh Sailon, STAR Program Director, Denver Police Department (DPD), have both been instrumental in the design, development, and management of Denver’s nationally recognized Co-Responder and STAR Programs. The Co-Responder Program pairs licensed mental health clinicians with Denver Police Officers to provide on-scene support, crisis de-escalation, and service linkage to individuals in violent situations experiencing mental health crises.

Making Democracy Work

The League of Women Voters of Denver, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization, has fought since the 1930s to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan. We neither support nor oppose candidates for office. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. The League:
  • Acts as a force to create positive, lasting change in our community
  • Empowers voters to protect their right to vote
  • Educates citizens and fosters dialogue on pertinent issues - from health care and climate change to openness in government
  • Strives to ensure that all votes are counted and all voices are heard
  • Works to preserve our constitutional rights
  • Partners with others to make democracy work
We believe that sensible, responsible civil discourse and action based on substance rather than partisanship are essential for civic improvement. Our enduring vitality and resonance come from our membership, which is open to all people 16 years of age and older.
