Campus Programming: Text, Talk, Act to Improve Mental Health
Text, Talk, Act is back! This April 24th, gather together to help end the silence on mental health.
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 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:
- At any time on April 24th, gather 3-4 of your friends, family, classmates, students, and/or colleagues;
- Text “start” to 89800; and
- 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.
