Text, Talk, Act uses text messaging to facilitate a face-to-face conversation on mental health. Participants gather in small groups (3-4 people) with one cell phone per group. They text START to the number 89800 to receive a series of text messages that guides their group through a conversation on mental health: why it is important, how to care for it, and how to help a friend in need. The text messages include videos, social media interactions, polling questions and discussion questions.
Getting people, especially youth, to talk about mental health is an especially important conversation, given that ¾ of all mental health problems begin between the ages of 14 and 24. Using this innovative approach, thousands of young people in all 50 states have gathered in small groups (in dorm rooms, kitchens, cafes, classrooms, and more) to participate in this growing movement. Young people have said that Text, Talk, Act is fun, flexible, easy, convenient, and leads to meaningful conversations that build peer understanding and support. Over 90% of respondents to follow-up surveys report an increase in understanding and over 65% of survey respondents report an increase in their level of comfort in talking about mental health.
We hope you’ll join us as we continue to bring people together for a conversation that reduces stigma, banishes loneliness, brings mental health out of the shadows and into the light, and might just change someone’s life.
