HFTD: Hope For The Day achieves proactive suicide prevention by providing outreach, and mental health education through self-expression platforms. Suicide is a preventable mental health crisis. The biggest obstacle to effective prevention is the silence of stigma. We will reduce rates by raising the visibility of resources for support and providing mental health education to equip and empower a grassroots movement of peer-to-peer proactive prevention that is a sustainable model for evolving social and institutional policies. Prevention starts with a conversation, It’s Ok Not To Be Ok. Learn more at hftd.org.
BC2M: In 2010 Glenn Close co-founded Bring Change 2 Mind (BC2M), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness through widely distributed Public Education Materials and programs based on the latest scientific insights and measured for effectiveness. The idea for the organization resulted from Ms. Close’s first-hand observation of the battles of mental illness within her family. Ms. Close’s sister, Jessie, is successfully living with Bipolar Disorder, and Jessie’s son, Calen, lives with Schizoaffective Disorder, and all three are actively involved in spreading the BC2M mission. Additionally, BC2M acts as a portal to a broad coalition of organizations that provide service, screening, information, support, and treatment for mental illness.
