Review: BringChange2MindCancer Websites, Organizations — By nygal on February 24, 2010 at 11:18 am
BringChange2Mind.org is a not-for-profit organization created by
Glenn Close, the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation (CABF),
Fountain House, and Garen and Shari Staglin of IMHRO (International
Mental Health Research Organization).
The idea of a national anti-stigma campaign was born of a partnership
between Glenn Close and Fountain House, where Glenn volunteered in order to learn about mental illness, which both her sister and nephew suffer from.
This is the first effort of this magnitude in U.S. history.
Ron Howard generously donated his time in directing their first PSA that features Glenn Close and her sister, Jessie Close. John Mayer generously donated his song, Say, which serves as an anthem for this movement. The campaign has the support of major mental health organizations.
