The Colorado Counselor Association (CCA) is a state branch of the Western Region for the 60,000 member American Counseling Association (ACA). The CCA is an organization of mental health professionals and students who work in education, health care, residential, private practice, community agencies, government and business/industry settings. The Colorado Counseling Association promotes the counseling profession through legislative advocacy, education resources, and outreach to future leaders in the mental health field.

The state-wide (and regional) 2021 Fall Conference will focus on the prevention and treatment of suicide and trauma. There will be a keynote presentation and multiple breakout time slots where CCA members and others will present on topics of interest. The CCA is working on offering both a virtual and face-to-face option for attendance. The conference goal is to host 250 professionals at its face-to-face option with hundreds of other attendees attending virtually from across Colorado and Western United States.

The conference will be set in the lovely backdrop of Pueblo, CO, the “Home of the Heroes”. This name was earned for housing four congressional medal of honor recipients. The town is also famous for the Pueblo chile, and 300 days of annual sunshine. The CCA believes this is a perfect location to engage members throughout the state. Pueblo is located two-hours south of Denver and it is easily accessible to many rural communities.
