Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health

What will you do when your friend needs help? Will you know what to say and how to respond? 

Right now, across the country, people are having a conversation on mental health and how to help a friend in need. Through text messaging, groups of people are receiving discussion questions to start the conversation, and are given resources to learn how to take care of themselves and how to help a friend in need. These brave people are ending the silence and taking to social media to encourage others to talk about the elephant in the room.

Now through the end of November, this conversation is happening nationwide. Anyone, anywhere, at any time can join this vital effort. It’s easy:

Gather your friends for this national dialogue to talk about the importance of taking care of your mental health - and how to help a friend in need - all through a fun and creative text-based dialogue! Get the infographic!
