Metro Public Health Behavioral Health Collaboration (MPHBHC) has launched a new campaign in English and Spanish to help eliminate the stigma associated with seeking treatment for mental illness. “Let’s Talk Colorado/Hablemos Colorado” is funded 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/Hablemos Colorado” media campaign is to reduce the stigma around mental illness so people who need treatment are more likely to seek it.
The campaign will be featured on billboards, bus shelters, in local community newspapers, and on Pandora from August through October. For more information about “Let’s Talk Colorado/Hablemos Colorado,” including a downloadable toolkit and other resources, visit www.letstalkco.org. MPHBHC is grateful to our Project Partners, who all contributed greatly to the development of the campaign, and to our hospital partners for their financial contribution.
