Dr. Joseph Carrica III,

The 2021-22 fiscal year was a year of resiliency. We saw the slowly, but surely waning effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and began to discover what the “new normal” meant for ourselves and our families.

It was also a year that the phrase “mental health” began popping up regularly in conversation. It was added to the vocabulary of our elected officials, woven in to the plot lines of our favorite television shows, and generally destigmatized as the world fully began to understand those two small but important words. At Southeast Health Group, we couldn’t be more excited to see this shift, and embraced it across our communities, adding more peer services, making the referral process easier, and doubling down on our efforts to recruit behavioral health providers to serve southeast Colorado.

Message from the CEO

One of the largest undertakings of the year was the renovation of 400 N. Main St. in Rocky Ford to create what we call a Health Services Mall. In addition to our mental health services that were already offered at that location, we have added additional resources, all within walking distance. These services include Peer 404, offering peer support, internet access, groups, and more to the residents of Rocky Ford; a barber and a massage therapist, operating as independent businesses, but willing to work closely with us and our mission; a resource pantry for community members in need of assorting clothing or household items; The Coffee Break Project, a gathering place for farmers, ranchers, and veterans; and finally the T-Shirt Palace, our vocational program, serving as a classroom for clients ready to learn new skills and prepare for a new beginning in the workforce.

In presenting this year’s annual report, I would like to thank the members of our advisory councils, who lent their time, opinions, and access to various resources to SHG to help us better understand the communities they represent. The support of our communities is truly the driving force in the success of our services. Alongside the SHG Board of Directors, and the hardworking SHG staff, a lot was accomplished this year. As always, my door is open to hear your thoughts. -JC
