What Do Prince Harry and New Hampshire Have in Common?
Posted by Give an Hour Admin on June 6, 2016 10:30 AM EDT
The Campaign to Change Direction is a collective impact effort designed to change the culture of mental health in America. The initial phase of the campaign focuses on creating a common language by educating all Americans about five key signs of emotional suffering. Just as we know the signs of a heart attack, we can all learn the signs of emotional suffering so that those in need receive the care and support they deserve. Based on responses we have seen in communities across the country—and in New Hampshire’s State House last week—a powerful movement is beginning to take shape.
What does Prince Harry have in common with the people in New Hampshire who have joined this growing movement? What does he have in common with the 180 partner organizations that have pledged to educate our citizens about the Five Signs, or the people leading regional efforts in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, Montgomery County, Maryland, or Summit County, Ohio? What does Prince Harry have in common with First Lady Michelle Obama, Chris Stapleton, Richard Gere, and Brian Wilson—all of whom have added their voices to support this critical effort?
We all share a belief that culture change is necessary and possible. We all believe that together we will Change Direction.
