Text, Talk, Act

Text, Talk, Act. Because mental health matters. 

Across the country, young people are having a nationwide conversation on mental health and how to help a friend in need. Through text messaging, small groups receive discussion questions to lead them through a conversation about mental health. Join us in this nationwide conversation to help end the silence on the following Text, Talk, Act days:

  • October 5th (with Active Minds’ National Day without Stigma),
  • October 6th (with Each Mind Matters), 
  • November 10th (with the National Association of School Psychologists’ School Psychology Awareness Week and 4-H) and
  • November 20th (with Youth M.O.V.E. National).

Here's how:
