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.
