DENVER (CBS4) – On Monday, Colorado Lieutenant Gov. Dianne Primavera helped proclaim May as Mental Health Month. She and mental health leaders in the state announced this year’s theme of Mental Health Proclamation Day is “Healing Together.”

The effort recognizes how thousands of Coloradans have been through so much with COVID-19 and the economic downturn this year. Primavera says in order to heal, we must come together.

Anyone needing support or resources can also call the Colorado Crisis Line at 1-844-493-8255 or text “TALK” to 238255.
