Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health

September 7, 2014

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. Using a technology that is ubiquitous with their lives, this is a fun event that reaches youth through text messages. 

Text, Talk, Act helps impact the way people think and talk about mental health. Participants in a previous event said:

This event is geared toward young people, but people of all ages can participate and benefit from it. It's very simple: 

  1. At any time on October 6th, gather 3-4 of your friends, family, classmates, students, and/or colleagues; 
  2. Text "start" to 89800; and
  3. Receive polling questions and discussion questions via text messaging while having a face-to-face dialogue with your group.

The process takes one hour. The result can last a lifetime.

In addition, three lucky participants will receive an iPad mini. Learn more register to win.
