Tackling Mental Health in Rural Communities.

Workers on farms and ranches in the rural areas of Colorado are reporting growing cases of stress, anxiety and depression, contributing to make Colorado a state with one of the highest suicide rates in the country. To address this mental health crisis, state legislators are proposing measures to help farmworkers and rural communities with life-saving resources to prevent suicides and treat mental health issues. A journalist and community advocates are invited to discuss the issue and the bills.

Guests: Paula Andalo, Ethnic Media Editor, KFF Health News, Silver Spring, MD; Iriana Medina, Community Engagement Coordinator, La Plaza, Palisade, CO.
