Letter: Klanderud a true mental health hero

I wish to pay tribute to Helen Klanderud. I first met Helen in spring 2008 when I moved to the Western Slope as the new CEO of Colorado West Regional Mental Health, now Mind Springs Health. Helen’s passion for community mental health was evident, a passion we shared along with the goal of assuring quality mental health services be available and provided to all people in need. Her consistent advocacy for mental health and the Aspen Counseling center is legendary and irreplaceable. She was a friend and mentor, and a true mental health hero. I personally will miss her smiling face and her generous heart. Thank you Helen for giving so much and being such a shining light for mental health needs.
