Terri Hurst, MSW has over 15 years of experience in behavioral health, public health and drug policy reform. She received her B.A. in Sociology and Human Services from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Terri joined the CCJRC team in 2014 and manages our Take Care Health Matters campaign. Her previous work has included improving access to health care services, in particular substance use disorder and mental health treatment. She has also provided direct services to injection drug users and justice involved people. She currently serves as the Board Chair of the Harm Reduction Action Center, Denver’s largest syringe access program, and has been a board member since 2008. In her ideal world, all drugs would be decriminalized, drug use would be treated as a public health issue, not a criminal one and anyone who wanted behavioral health treatment would be able to access it on demand.
