Psych Central and our affiliated non-profit organization, the Psych Central Community Connection, have partnered with the National Dialogue on Mental Health, the White House initiative started in 2013 to help increase the national discussion about mental illness, treatment and general mental health.
Creating Community Solutions, who is also part of the national dialogue, has brought face-to-face dialogues on mental health to over 170 communities. They’ve done this with an innovative texting app to help get the conversation started with groups of friends about mental health.
On October 6, they held a contest to see who could bring the most folks together to talk about mental health.
On behalf of the Psych Central community, the Psych Central Community Connection — which provides micro-grants to community members in need — entered the contest and, to our surprise, was one of the many winners!
