KYGO Wants to Talk

KYGO Denver, Colorado





In 2020, COVID-19 directly affected the mental health of many people, with anincrease in distress, anxiety and depression. These, in addition to violence, alcohol use disorders, substance abuse and feelings of loss are troubling factors that can increase a person's risk of deciding to take their own life. KYGO’s goal in 2020 was to encourage people to take their mental health and emotional well-being as seriously as their physical well-being by partnering with Let's Talk Colorado and supporting a weekly podcast, “Teen Talk.” The yearlong “Let's Talk Colorado” campaign helped the local community overcome mental health stigma by encouraging conversations around mental health and providing resources for those struggling.
