Silver Thread Public Health

Sobre Nós

The Silver Thread Public Health District (STPHD) serves the communities of Mineral and Hinsdale counties, including Creede and Lake City. We assist residents and visitors in the counties we serve with the health information, programs, services, and resources they need to enjoy full, healthy lives. We are a small but mighty public health team in the most remote public health district in the continental United States. We are committed to eliminating barriers to health and wellness for all, building resilience, and empowering our communities to live a healthy life through education, support, and access.

As we and our communities heal from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are immersed in a series of core strategies to support community wellbeing: addressing isolation and loneliness; reducing substance abuse; increasing food security; improving elder support; expanding vaccine services; and cultivating a sense of belonging and care for all residents and visitors to our region. 

As an organization, we are committed to ensuring that no one in our communities is disposable, and that our policies, programs, and practices interrupt inequities and cultivate belonging. Living in our communities requires an openness to being in relationships with people across difference, challenging your assumptions about your neighbors, and working with community partners that you may not have a reason to connect with in a more urban setting. While our impact in raw numbers may be small, working at STPHD means that every action, every opportunity to support someone on their best or most challenging day has ripple effects that you can see and feel. We are a tight knit team committed to deepening our Health Equity practices every day, and developing innovative solutions to the complex population level health challenges faced by our communities.
