Think of what you can do in May for Mental Health Awareness Month. Everyone has someone in their life that suffers from mental illness. Make sure you let them know how wonderful this world is with them. This month if you buy my book 'Grace Under Pressure - Smiling Through Adversity' I will donate a portion of the sales to Bring Change 2 Mind. Read the article below to understand their mission.
MESSAGE FROM GLENN CLOSE and BRING CHANGE 2 MIND:
Many of you learned about Bring Change 2 Mind through our 2009 Public
Service Announcement (PSA) directed by Ron Howard and filmed in New
York’s majestic Grand Central Station. Thanks to generous media
partners, and your outreach, our anti-stigma awareness message has been
seen by an astounding 800 million people.
Our community is strong but we want
our collective voice to be louder! In support of Mental Health
Awareness Month this May, we’ve partnered with Time to Change, England’s
largest program challenging mental health stigma and discrimination, to
create a new PSA based on one of the U.K.’s most effective social media
We need your help!
As we develop our new
campaign, we’re looking to you to help us fund a small portion of the
production. We’ve called in lots of favors but some fixed costs must be
covered. With your donation, large or small, we will reach millions of
new viewers. If you cannot contribute, we hope that you will continue
to support BC2M by sharing our message, enlisting friends to take The
Pledge and helping us grow our community through Facebook and Twitter.
Our message is based on the latest science.
Members of our Scientific Advisory Council have measured the efficacy
of a Time to Change PSA prototype for an American audience. Data
collected from this study shows increased understanding of the
commonality of mental illness, a reduction in social distancing, and a
strong belief that recovery is possible! We will reshoot the PSA
featuring my family. Like 1 in 4 families affected by mental health
disorders, we struggle through the challenging times and celebrate the
It’s time to talk about mental illness and end
stigma & discrimination. Thank you for your participation in our new
campaign and your continued support of Bring Change 2 Mind!
With great appreciation,
