Modernize Behavioral Health Terminology in Colorado Revised Statutes

Concerning modernizing terminology in the Colorado Revised Statutes related to behavioral health.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

The bill updates and modernizes terminology in the Colorado Revised Statutes related to behavioral health, mental health, alcohol abuse, and substance abuse. Based on specific contexts, the new terminology refers to behavioral health disorders, mental health disorders, alcohol use disorders, or substance use disorders.

Outdated references to the 'unit in the department of human services that administers behavioral health programs and services, including those related to mental health and substance abuse' have been corrected to use the actual current name of that office, which is 'the office of behavioral health in the department of human services'.
