Mile High Behavioral Healthcare – Knowledge is Freedom (HIV) / Bee The Vibe
The Knowledge Is Freedom project provides trauma-informed, “one-stop” services to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness to increase preventative, medical, or behavioral health care and decrease risk-taking behaviors.
In partnership with Mile High Behavioral Healthcare, we provide a comprehensive process and outcomes program evaluation of Knowledge is Freedom, serving 300 clients over five years. This project focuses on individuals with substance use disorder (SUD) and SUD with co-occurring mental health disorders who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, as well as the LGBTQ+ and transgender populations. While all racially and ethnically diverse groups are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS, these subpopulations are even more so due to multiple barriers, discrimination, and marginalization.
