Text, Talk, Act: It's Back! April 24, 2014
Join Creating Community Solutions and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation in this innovative event!
The process takes one hour. The result can last a lifetime.
Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health is an hour-long event that uses text messaging to get people talking about mental health and encourage them to take action. Through this event, young people can have a conversation with their peers and give voice to an issue that can otherwise be difficult for them to speak about.
Text, Talk, Act helps impact the way people think and talk about mental health. Participants in a previous event said:
- At any time on April 24th, gather 3-4 of your friends, family, classmates, students, and/or colleagues;
- Text "start" to 89800; and
- Receive polling and discussion questions via text messaging while having a face-to-face dialogue with your group.
Born This Way Foundation is partnering with CCS on this effort. Led by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, Born This Way Foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world. Several of the Foundation’s Youth Advisory Board members are also joining this effort as youth organizers, who are helping to spread the word of Text, Talk, Act amongst their friends and throughout their schools.
