BOISE, Idaho — KTVB is partnering with Optum Idaho for a new series, Hello Idaho, with the goal of beginning the conversation about mental health and providing resources and stories on a variety of mental health-related issues. In this new series, we'll talk about topics ranging from anxiety and depression to drug abuse.

We hope you'll join us in this long-running conversation about mental health as we launch Hello Idaho in the coming days.

To begin talking about mental health, KTVB first wants to say hello to those who are joining us, because a simple hello can snowball into something so much more and meaningful.

Secondly, we complied a living list of resources on different topics and issues. As Hello Idaho's conversation grows, we will continually add resources and places of support to this article, so make sure to bookmark this article or the Hello Idaho page.
