Let’s Talk Colorado was launched by a State Innovation Model grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. The purpose of the funding is to improve the health of Coloradans by providing access to physical and behavioral health care. The goal of the Let’s Talk Colorado media campaign is to initiate an inclusive conversation. All Coloradans benefit when we learn to discuss our mental health, and those of us who need treatment are more likely to seek it when we all agree that mental health is everyone’s responsibility.
