Putting Community Back in Community Mental Health

Denver’s Northeast Park Hill is a proud neighborhood filled with strong people. Built in the 1950s, Dahlia Square was the largest African-American-owned shopping center in the U.S. with a thriving grocery store, roller-skating rink, bowling alley and a full array of local businesses. But times changed and gradually the once popular neighborhood nucleus became an eyesore and was razed. It became a gaping hole in the neighborhood fabric.

Over the years, many groups from outside the community offered help. But promises were broken, plans fell apart and the vacant lot remained. When the Mental Health Center of Denver purchased the land several years ago, neighbors were wary. Maya Wheeler, an advocate for the African-American community, was one of them. She worried that mostly white clinicians and social workers would come into the primarily African-American and Latino neighborhood to solve community problems with prescription drugs.

Lydia Prado, Ph.D., vice president of child and family services at the Mental Health Center of Denver, spent nearly three years meeting with community members and other stakeholders and listening to what people in the surrounding neighborhood wanted and needed to help their community thrive. “Little by little we got to know each other and crafted a vision together about what would make a difference,” she says.
