Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health

Creating Community Solutions, part of the National Dialogue on Mental Health, is hosting a nationwide discussion on mental health using text messaging technology. “Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health” will be held on December 5th – people from all over the country will join together in small groups for one-hour discussions on mental health. Participants will receive polling & discussion questions and process suggestions via text message.

The process is simple:
1. Receive reminders and materials before the event at the TextTalkAct webpage (this step is optional)
2. Bring some people together on December 5th
3. Form into groups of 4-5, with at least one cellphone per group
4. Text “start” to 89800

Participants can host their one-hour discussion at any time on December 5th. This event was created as an easy way for people to organize discussions on mental health, and the text messaging technology is being utilized to encourage young people to join, 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.

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.
