The Health of Our
Community and Environment
The mental health of the community is never
far from the mind of DPTV, as it collaborates
with caring, invested organizations like
Kevin’s Song and With One Voice to raise
suicide awareness and promote emotional
well-being through conferences, television
reports and courageous conversations. As
the host of the Michigan stop in the national
Well Beings Tour, DPTV let young people do
the talking, as they discussed the mental
health challenges they face today and what
the community can do to help.
Regional and national initiatives also flourish.
Great Lakes Now, a hub of information on
environmental news and our freshwater
heritage, has expanded into a network of
29 participating stations contributing to the
daily posts on GreatLakesNow.org and the
monthly “Great Lakes Now” television show.
Twice monthly Facebook watch parties have
involved thousands of viewers on conversations related to PFAS, shipwrecks, aquarium
tours, invasive species and other subjects.
