Experts note there is often a link between substance use/abuse and mental health challenges. To address this issue, the Douglas County Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition and Colorado Community Media have partnered to present "Time to Talk," a series of monthly podcasts we hope will empower Douglas County residents to talk about mental health concerns, and solutions.

For more information on the Time To Talk story series and in-person community forums dates and locations go to coloradocommunitymedia.com/timetotalk.
