Because mental health matters. 

Coming this spring, young people will have a nationwide conversation on mental health and how to help a friend in need. Through text messaging, small groups will receive discussion questions to lead them through a conversation about mental health: how to take care of theirs and how to help a friend in need. Join these brave people to help end the silence on mental health.

It’s easy:
3-steps

Because this conversation is going to take all of us.  

Join us in Text, Talk, Act, and invite your friends. On Tuesday, April 14th* (in collaboration with Active Minds’ Stress Less Week) and on Thursday, May 7th*(in partnership with SAMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day), bring your friends, family and peers together to take part in this nationwide event. When your group is ready, text START to 89800.
