High Risk At High Altitude
Aspen Public Radio is talking about mental health. The first part of our series focused on the collision of pandemic depression and seasonal depression, but mountain living comes with specific mental health risks that go beyond the winter season. We know our region is prone to issues with mental wellness and higher rates of suicide. When you factor in the news of the last year, all those things can weigh more heavily.
We’re continuing our discussion about mental health, and we’re talking to local experts, therapists and counselors as part of the conversation. But the Aspen Public Radio newsroom wants to hear directly from our listeners. We encourage you to contact us with any questions, comments or stories by emailing email@example.com and putting "Mental Health Project" in the subject line.
