Quad Innovation Partnership Announces New Client: Partnership for Children’s Mental Health, a Center Focused on Improving the Youth Mental Health System in Colorado
Date:10/30/2019

The Quad Innovation Partnership (QIP), the only higher education partnership of its kind in the United States, is pleased to announce new work with Partners for Children’s Mental Health (PCMH), a center supported by Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado Department of Psychiatry.

PCMH operates as across-system resource, training, and implementation hub in order to ultimately increase capacity, access, and quality of youth mental health services in Colorado. It works with partners across the state to identify, scale, and sustain best practices to help connect youth and families to effective mental health treatment and, ultimately, save lives.

One of PCMH’s key action items is school-based mental health care and suicide prevention. Students from QIP will conduct and deliver interdisciplinary research to assess best practice suicide prevention programs that address key risk factors among elementary and middle school students in Colorado. PCMH currently offers support to high schools; the project will help PCMH expand support to elementary and middle school students statewide.

“The Quad works on many important initiatives that impact our communities and this initiative with Partners for Children’s Mental Health is one of the most critical items our organization has been a part of,” said Jake Eichengreen, Executive Director of the Quad Innovation Partnership. “As noted by PCMH, suicide is the #1 cause of death among Colorado youth ages 10-24. This is a massive problem and we have assembled a dedicated team to produce outcomes for PCMH that address real need and will strengthen their essential work.”

QIP is comprised of students, staff and faculty from Colorado College, Pikes Peak Community College, University of Colorado Colorado Springs and the US Air Force Academy. This diverse group delivers professional-grade recommendations, tactics and solutions for a varied array of clients, covering a wide range of initiatives and issues that impact the lives of people in southern Colorado and the nation.

“The Quad’s recommendations will be critical to our efforts to provide a scalable, low-cost suicide prevention package to schools across Colorado,” said Shannon Van Deman, Executive Director of Partners for Children’s Mental Health and Vice President of the Pediatric Mental Health Institute at Children’s Hospital Colorado. “The Quad is recognized as a leader tackling some of the biggest challenges facing our state. We’re excited to partner with them to create real impact for youth and families.”

The project was made possible through the generosity of Mark and Shannon Breuer and their family, who are dedicated to supporting the most effective initiatives in expanding behavioral health access, reducing youth suicide, and positively impacting our community’s children and families.
