Each Mind Matters activated by Mission Hospital
In collaborating with Each Mind Matters, Mission Hospital is encouraging
us all to talk openly and honestly about mental health. Launched in May
2015, the outreach provides information, tools and resources to help people
start conversations in a safe way. Doing so leads to early support and
help that reduces needless suffering and saves lives.
Mission Hospital will be visiting communities through local in-neighborhood
visits, community event participation, sponsored bus advertising, local
print and broadcast public service announcements, public facility displays and more.
The Green Bench
You are invited to look for a park bench adorned in lime green, the national
color for mental health awareness. As a signature program element, this
dynamic visual and portable display represents deep conversations with
friends, loved ones and community members in a safe space.
The lime green bench will travel to and appear at local Orange County events,
civic centers, community facilities, schools, shopping areas and more.
If you see the green bench, share photos and videos on social media with
Promise to Talk
Mental health is an integral part of each of us as humans. An essential
way community members can be a part of the mental health movement is to
“Promise to Talk” with family and friends or share their story
Individuals may make a promise to talk at
PromiseToTalk.org, through @PromiseToTalk via
Twitter, or in person at events where Mission Hospital is participating with Each
Mind Matters. By mid-2016, Mission Hospital is striving to achieve a minimum
of 1,000 promises from Orange County residents.
