Over the last year, 6 On Your Side expanded our Finding Hope series to focus not just on addiction, but mental health and the issues surrounding the local stigma, access to resources and the tools people are using to find a light at the end of the tunnel. We've talked with real people facing problems and our main goal is to help members of our community come up with solutions in the moments so many face.

In this endeavor, we teamed up with KXLY in Spokane and Coeur d' Alene as well as Local News 8 in Idaho Falls to produce a half-hour special called "Finding Hope: Idaho's Mental Health Challenge" presented by Optum.

Please, join us as we identify warning signs to look for in your workplace, in your home, or in your child's school. This is a case where what you don't know can hurt you or someone you love, but the resources are there for individuals who seek help. It all starts with identifying the problem. Then, we can all join in finding the solutions.
