The Brain Trust is a collaborative network of community stakeholders committed to changing minds and attitudes about mental illness in El Paso County to improve mental and emotional well-being for the health of children, youth, and adults. This network was formed in 2011 with support from Paso del Norte Health Foundation. 

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at 4:00 pm Mountain Time and are open to anyone interested in learning more about mental health and the reduction of the negative bias that surrounds mental illness. Brain Trust meetings serve to Inform stakeholders including policymakers on ways to promote a socially inclusive community; strengthen communication among stakeholders, existing networks, and community members to maintain a unified vision about social inclusion, and mental illness early detection, timely treatment, and recovery; and maximize resources by sharing data, and identifying, refining and implementing interventions that work.

Brain Trust Vision
