Each Mind Matters is California’s Mental Health Movement We are a community of individuals and organizations dedicated to a shared vision of mental wellness and equality. Wellness doesn’t mean we’ll never need help. It means we are proactive, positive and resilient when faced with challenges.
Know the Signs is a statewide suicide prevention social marketing campaign built on three key messages: Know the signs. Find the words. Reach out. This campaign is intended to educate Californians how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, how to find the words to have a direct conversation with someone in crisis and where to find professional help and resources.
Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, sad, hopeless, irritable or unfocused?
Have you noticed a friend who might be feeling this way? It’s “OK” to answer “yes” if that’s the case. These feelings could be a normal part of the college experience, but they could also be something that requires help to overcome. If you were in physical pain, you’d get it checked out. Mental health is just as important.
