Whether you're just hearing about it or you've done it before, we hope you'll join us this fall.
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 between September 2nd and the end of October, 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.
