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.

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.
