"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. 

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

1. At any time on Thursday, April 24, gather three to five of your friends, family, classmates, students, and/or colleagues;

2. Text "start" to 89800; and

3. Receive polling and discussion questions via text messaging while having a face-to-face dialogue with your group.

Our request is small — commit to facilitating a discussion! You only need one cell phone per conversation. Grab some people and get texting!

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