In 1975, Aurora Mental Health Center was founded by a group of concerned Aurora residents lead by Ellin Mrachek who were determined to bring mental health services to the city. Their efforts took place in donated space.
Since then, the Center has grown into a full-service community mental health center with more than 400 employees, 50 interns, and 80 volunteers, which the Colorado Division of Mental Health has honored several years as one of the very best. Now, services are provided by 16 specialty clinics, located in seven counseling and specialized service centers, six residential facilities, public schools, two county departments of human services, in homes and foster homes, and at other community locations.
