Something other than the election

I figure you’ll hear enough about the election today. So I’d like to share something else for a change.

It’s the story of my friend Evan Silverman. (He’s also my boss, as a member of our board.) Evan describes his journey far better than I could; just watch.

If you’re inspired by Evan’s story, I invite you to share your own. We’re building a story bank as part of an ongoing effort to demystify mental illness.

You can also share your story in person. Our statewide listening tour — “A Conversation with Colorado” — heads to Aurora on Nov. 15 and Brighton on Dec. 7.

Whether you or someone you care for has experienced a mental health or substance use disorder, you have a stake in this conversation. That will be just as true after tomorrow, too.
