Hope Is An Action

April 2019 E-Newsletter

Explore Your Definition Of Hope And Experience What It Can Inspire You To Do!
Bring Change to Mind’s High School Program is proud to introduce its first collective call to action week for all participating clubs nationwide. Starting April 8th, we are dedicating this five-day campaign to the hashtag “Hope Is An Action.” We invite our entire community to join us in sharing this inspirational week with your family, friends, and social networks.

Throughout this week, we aim to encourage communities to explore what hope means to them by exploring their own definition of hope, what it can look like, and experiencing what it can inspire you to do. These hopeful discoveries can be used to incite positive change while nurturing empathetic and compassionate conversations about mental health.

For each day’s theme, BC2M has suggested a few different ways you can engage in this campaign. Most activities incorporate social media presence to spread the message throughout your community and throughout the greater BC2M community.

We are thrilled to have our 180 clubs and more than 5.000 club members participate in our first BC2M-wide campaign activation and we can’t wait for you to be a part of this collective!

Hope is something that everyone needs and it is particularly important to those living with mental illness. We ‘hope” that you will be inspired to join this growing movement of mental health advocacy and share the importance of compassion with your community.

How can you support the campaign?

My Face of Hope
Monday, April 8, 2019

We all have those people who move us, who keep us going when we feel our inner light diminishing. Maybe that person is a family member, best friend, historical figure, or even a fictional character. Whoever that special person is, take a moment to tell us why they inspire you. #HopeIsAnAction #MyFaceOfHope #BringChangeToMind #TheFutureIsStigmaFree #BC2M

Spreading the Hope
Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Most of us have experienced a rotten day that has been turned around by a stranger complimenting us, or touched our hearts in a small-but-mighty way. No act of kindness is too small. Take a moment today to touch somebody’s heart with an unsolicited, kind gesture. #HopeIsAnAction #SpreadingTheHope #BringChangeToMind #TheFutureIsStigmaFree #BC2M

Hope Grows
Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Did you know that gratitude improves physical and emotional health, enhances empathy, improves your self-esteem, and may even help you sleep better? Take a moment to jot down three things that you are grateful for today. Keep it to yourself, or share it with somebody! Where gratitude grows, hope grows. #HopeIsAnAction #HopeGrows #BringChangeToMind #TheFutureIsStigmaFree #BC2M

Finding Hope
Thursday, April 11, 2019

It can be difficult to find hope in the midst of gloom. There are days where you may need to lay in bed and listen to an intentionally heart-wrenching playlist, but then there will be days where you need to get out of the house and actively search for brightness. Have you looked up at the sky today? Noticed the leaves in the trees? Is there something that catches your eye and makes you smile on your way to or from work? We want to see how YOU find hope! #HopeIsAnAction #FindingHope #BringChangeToMind #TheFutureIsStigmaFree #BC2M

Hope is an Action
Friday, April 12, 2019

We hope this week has shown you that each small effort and action add up to create waves throughout your community — a ripple effect that you might not even be aware of. With this past week’s activities in mind, use today to contemplate steps you can take moving forward to keep spreading hope because hope is an action! #HopeIsAnAction #BringChangeToMind #TheFutureIsStigmaFree #BC2M
