Text, Talk and Act: Join the mental health conversation on December 5th

3 Comments | Posted

This December 5th, join Creating Community Solutions in a nationwide discussion on mental health….via your cell phone! All over the country, on the same day, people will get together in small groups for one-hour discussions on mental health.

The process is simple: join 3-4 of your friends, family, classmates, students, and/or colleagues and text “start” to 89800. Your group will then receive polling questions, discussion questions, and process suggestions via text messaging.

3steps“Text, Talk, Act on Mental Health” is designed to engage high school and college students in particular, using technology that is ubiquitous in their lives. Results from the live polling questions will be tabulated almost instantly, so that people will be able to see how participants across the country responded. The discussion questions will provide a safe space for candid dialogue on mental health, one of the most critical and misunderstood public issues we face. The process will also provide an opportunity for participants to discuss actions they can take to strengthen mental health on their campuses and in their communities.
