Time to treat mental health as brain health

Nov 3, 2022

Recent reports have found that a startling number of Colorado residents are suffering from a form of mental illness. Sadly these symptoms, that can be so debilitating for those affected, cannot be fixed by a one-time surgery or even a transplant. And though the perception of mental health is beginning to change, the stigma that mental health is inferior and less deserving of attention than physical health continues to persist. This must change.
