On Edge: Statewide Conversation About Mental Health

At 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 18, 2021, the Colorado News Collaborative and our news partners presented a one-hour statewide conversation about mental health as part of our ongoing series, On Edge.

The panel was live-streamed and recorded, and can be viewed here:

The live conversation was hosted by Jordan Chavez of 9News (who bravely broke stigma barriers to talk about his own mental health) and features:

Dr. Robert Werthwein, head of the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health, and one of the people profiled in On Edge.

Laura Negley from Eads, who has gone through debilitating depression in a rural community that doesn’t discuss mental health issues.

Dana Licko from Denver, a mother and former journalist at 9News who has an opioid addiction and talks about the importance of self care.
