Mental Health Partners lays off approximately 17 employees

Kelly Gooch -

Mental Health Partners, a Boulder, Colo.-based addiction and mental health services provider, cut approximately 17 jobs, or about 3.5 percent of its nearly 500-person workforce, on June 14, according to a Daily Camera report.

MHP, which has locations in Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette and Broomfield, Colo., attributed the layoffs to the changing healthcare industry, as well as restructuring efforts that started nearly a year ago.

"With an eye toward continuing changes in the healthcare landscape, Mental Health Partners has been working since July 2017 to structure our nonprofit organization to the ongoing needs of our community and remain fiscally responsible," officials said in a statement on the MHP website. "Since July 2017, we have implemented various measures, such as consolidating responsibilities through identification of workflow efficiencies and not filling some positions due to attrition, while maintaining thoughtful, timely, and effective services. Additional positions were identified for elimination as part of an overall effort as the organization enters fiscal year 2019."

Officials said they don't expect the restructuring efforts to affect MHP's services, and any future announcements will be posted on the organization's website.
