GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. – It’s something that so many of us struggle with, yet it can be extremely difficult to open up and talk about.

According to Allina Health, it’s estimated that one in five adults struggle with some form of mental health condition, like anxiety or depression.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Dr. Roger Laroche, psychiatrist at Allina Health, stopped by KARE 11 at 4 to talk about mental health, and ways to help reduce the stigma surrounding it.
