Often, the most necessary conversations are the ones that are most difficult. Text, Talk, Act (TTA) makes at least one conversation a little easier by assisting students to share their mental health stories through a very familiar platform: text messaging.
Once again this semester, Active Minds is excited to partner with TTA on April 19 as part of Active Minds’ Stress Less Week. Chapters that register to host a TTA event on April 19 are eligible receive a $1,000 cash prize. Past winners have included Active Minds at Coppin State University, Ithaca College, and UCLA!
To participate, all you need is to gather at least three or four friends on April 19, and text “89800” for mental health discussion prompts. You and your friends will be guided through a series of conversation-starters, from videos to polling, along with many other chapters participating across the country.
Want to join this movement? Get started with the three simple steps below:
- Register your event and receive an organizer code.
- Share your organizer code with everyone you reach out to and ask them to enter it when they are prompted to do so during Text Talk Act on April 19.
- Get as many people as you can to Text Talk Act on April 19. Gather your friends, classmates, family, and community members and have them text “START” to 89800 to begin.
REMEMBER: Be sure to share your unique organizer code with your participants to enter at the prompt!
