MISSION

 

The gO Initiative’s annual Turkey Trot aims to raise awareness and destigmatize the topic of mental health and we truly appreciate you joining us on this mission. Each year the gO Initiative will choose a beneficiary that supports mental health services in the valley.

In 2021 we partnered with CB State of Mind in helping fulfill their mission to reduce the high rate of suicide in Crested Butte. Their work is based on the foundation and belief that suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide. Through decreasing stigma, increasing support/education, and increasing access their hope is simple: to save lives. For 2022 we are excited to partner with the Gunnison Valley Health Behavioral Department which offers a diverse range of services designed to address the specific behavioral health needs of our valley. Through their service offerings and strong community partnerships, Gunnison Valley Health provides both clinical and supportive services to address a broad spectrum of needs.
