We are honored to partner with Bring Change To Mind, and provide financial support to their overall mission.
In 2010, Glenn Close co-founded Bring Change to Mind (BC2M), a nonprofit organization built to start the conversation about mental health and to raise awareness, understanding, and empathy. The idea for the organization resulted from Ms. Close’s first-hand observation of the battles with mental illness within her own family. Ms. Close’s sister, Jessie, successfully lives with bipolar disorder, and Jessie’s son, Calen, lives with schizoaffective disorder, and all three are actively involved in spreading the organization’s mission.
BC2M develops influential public service announcements (PSAs); pilots evidence-based, peer-to-peer programs at the undergraduate and high school levels engaging students to eradicate stigma; and has created a social movement around change by providing people with platforms to share, connect, and learn. Because science is essential to achieving this mission, BC2M’s work is grounded in the latest research, evaluated for effectiveness, and shared with confidence. An integral component of this is BC2M’s Scientific Advisory Council, which is comprised of an acclaimed team of experts in the fields of stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness.
We also partnered with BC2M on our, Let's talk about #thegreenelephantintheroom Campaign.
Because the first step in addressing “mental illness” and fighting the stigma is talking about the “elephant in the room.”
With the purchase of our elephant pieces, we donate 25% of the proceeds to Bring Change 2 Mind.
