Resources for Communication about COVID-19
Welcome Partners! Communication around the COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be complex in making sure we get accurate information to as many people as possible. We could not do this without your help. Whether you are communicating with leaders, the public, colleagues, or multi-sector partners, this page has exclusive resources for you.
NEW! Life with COVID-19 Campaign
This new Life with COVID-19 Communications Campaign encourages everyone to keep using all of the behaviors we have learned to fight COVID-19 that keep the virus from spreading as we begin to take steps to return to the new normal or "Life with COVID-19." Our goal is to have everyone engage in all of the COVID-19 prevention behaviors as possible until a vaccine or herd immunity is achieved. These behaviors include masking, hand washing, social distancing, staying home, and isolating when sick. Assets for the Life with COVID-19 campaign are available on our Google Drive at Life with COVID-19 Campaign.

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.
