Numbers increased across all demographics, including race, age, gender and ethnicity.

Over the next 18 months, the state will be assisting more than 2,500 mentally ill people now living in nursing homes.

"What we have to do is acknowledge that there are people in nursing homes who have mental illness, and if they are going to have to be there because there is a nowhere else for them to go then we've got to make sure that the care for them includes dealing with mental illnesses", says DuBois. "Even if someone seems like they have everything, they might still be struggling with something they're afraid to talk about".

The resolution further states that seeking mental health treatment is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength, and that by seeking treatment you can recover and live longer, healthier lives.

Most is part of a coalition of public and mental health groups behind the Let's Talk Colorado campaign, an initiative encouraging Coloradans to talk openly about mental health.

The council's resolution is created to raise awareness in Glen Rock and help remove the stigma, fear and misunderstanding about mental illness and thereby encourage treatment by ensuring that those persons in Glen Rock who confront metal health issues know that they are not alone. "Help is available", the World Health Organization said.

With two high profile deaths in as many days this week, fashion designer Kate Spade and television personality Anthony Bourdain, mental health is at the top of the news.
