Let’s Talk about our Mental and Emotional Health

Your County Commissioners encourage connecting with friends, family and neighbors.

Your Douglas County Commissioners urge everyone in our community to remember the importance of reaching out to others and talking about our mental and emotional health. And they hope to make it easier for you to start the conversation with these Let’s Talk videos to share with adults and youth in English and Spanish.

Our mental and emotional health is just as important as our physical health and now, more than ever, it’s important for us to connect with others. Simply talking with someone can make you, and them, feel better.

Calling, texting, video chatting and social media are all great ways to reach out to your family, friends and community. Take a moment to check in — ask how they are feeling and share what you are feeling. It’s an easy step we can all do to feel better and help others. It may even save a life.

The more we all talk about our challenges to living a happy, balanced life, the more likely we are to seek help when we need it. The Board of Douglas County Commissioners, the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative and the Tri-County Health Department ask that you watch and share these Let’s Talk messages with your community.

People who need immediate support due to a mental health crisis should contact Colorado Crisis Services – call 1.844.493.TALK(8255) or text TALK to 38255. This agency has trained counselors who are available 24/7/365 to work with persons in crisis and the people supporting them.
