Break Open

A Mental Health Festival 


The mission of Break Open is to challenge perceptions, breakdown stigma, and provide people tools for their mental tool kit. 

This is a free event brought to you with love, fueled by a desire to help one another and make the world a slightly less lonely place. 
Thank you to our title sponsors UCHealth Mountain Crest for the generous support.
