Sutherland Bipolar center

In Partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder the Sutherland Bipolar Center provides evaluation and treatment services to people with bipolar disorders regardless of their ability to pay. The Sutherland Centers provides diagnostic evaluations, treatment recommendations, psychotherapy (individual, family and group), a limited amount of on-going medication management, and an educational seminar series. Services are offered on a sliding-fee scale.


In addition to providing expert treatment and evaluation services to people who otherwise couldn't afford it, the center provides intensive training to advanced doctoral students in our clinical psychology program.

Our Community

One of our biggest goals as we endeavor to make change is to create a community of peer support. Often times, knowing that you are not alone in your struggle to cope with mental health concerns can offer hope and be of great comfort. We envision this community to be a safe place where people can turn for encouragement and resources in tough times; or to find an opportunity to make change themselves.
