May 9th is National Children’s Mental Health Day. The second podcast of Breaking Through: A Mental Health Conversation With Colorado Kids is now available on Fox 31, or wherever you stream podcasts. In this podcast, youth mental health advocates from across the state come together with Camille Harding, the division director of Community Behavioral Health for the Colorado Department of Human Services and Kim Posey to discuss the mental health challenges that today’s youth face and how their parents can be better informed to support them. The second episode of the four-part series reveals how kids deal with anxiety and depression and their thoughts on recent youth suicide in Colorado.
Discussions with Colorado youth on this podcast include the impact of social media, strategies that work and Colorado kids experience.
