Time to Talk: Public forum on mental health and its impact on families

It's time to talk about mental health.

Mothers and mental health advocates talk about how mental illness affects families, and why — and how — we need to talk about it.

On Nov. 14, 2018, Colorado Community Media, in partnership with Douglas County Libraries and the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative held a second community forum.  Speakers included Jean Ritter and Alissa Miller.
