Bring Change 2 Mind is a national anti-stigma campaign aimed at removing misconceptions about mental illness. The idea was born out of a partnership between Glenn Close and Fountain House, where Glenn volunteered in order to learn more about mental illness, which both her sister, Jessie Close, and nephew, Calen Pick, live with.
One in four people are affected by mental illness. As with most diseases, mental illnesses are no one's fault – they are a biological disorder of the brain. BC2M wants those that live with a mental illness to be looked upon no differently than people diagnosed with any other serious illness such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease.
Bring Change 2 Mind's mission is to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness through widely distributed Public Education Materials based on the latest scientific insights and measured for effectiveness. To act as a portal to a broad coalition of organizations that provide service, screening, information, support and treatment of mental illness.
We are very proud to be supporting and donating a percentage of our Trunk Show in Los Angeles to help BC2M further their mission!
