Colorado mental health nonprofit hosts listening tour Thursday in Frisco

Mental Health Colorado, a nonprofit focused on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health and substance-use disorders, will be through Frisco this Thursday evening, Aug. 18, as part of its public "Conversation with Colorado" listening tour.

Andrew Romanoff, the organization's president and CEO, will lead the discussion that attempts to engage more Coloradans in breaking through the barriers of mental health care. Others attending include mental health professionals, family members of those battling mental disorders, teachers, law enforcement representatives, town and county officials and state lawmakers. Previous stops have had upwards of 90 people in attendance.

Mental Health Colorado has already visited Pueblo, Greely, Ft. Collins and Colorado Springs, and will also visit Grand Junction this week ahead of its open meeting in Summit County. The agency plans to compile all of the information from the tour to help make the state a national leader in addressing mental health and substance-use disorders.
