Event Background
Aspen Strong was founded by Christina King, a local psychotherapist. She began the organization with Hike Hope Heal to raise money and awareness of the Mental Health Fund.

This event has grown into the Mental Fitness Fair. Proceeds from the event go to HeadQuarters operations and the Mental Health Fund, a fund therapists from Aspen to Parachute can tap into to get up to 10 subsidized therapy sessions for their clients who are uninsured, under-insured, or face financial barriers to care. In 2022, the Mental Health Fund supported:

  • $82,282 in therapy sessions for our region 
  • 27% of the requests came from Aspen/Snowmass
  • 20% from Basalt
  • 20% from Glenwood Springs
  • 14% from Carbondale
  • 19% came from the Grand Mesa Region (New Castle to Rifle)
  • Of these requests 10% came from youth ages 6-18

Event Objective
We are excited to present HeadQuarters Mental Fitness Fair. Mental Fitness is the purposeful practice of taking care of your mind. Through this we gain the tools and skills to cope with everyday stressors, creating the resiliency to thrive.

This collaborative event is designed to provide community members the opportunity to explore different modalities they can use for their mental fitness and discover mental health resources offered from Aspen to Parachute.
