Change Direction Campaign

The Change Direction initiative is a collection of concerned citizens, nonprofit leaders, and leaders from the private sector who have come together to change the culture about mental health, mental illness, and wellness. The initiative was inspired by the discussion at the White House National Conference on Mental Health in 2013, which came on the heels of the Newtown, Conn. tragedy.

Our Pledge
We pledge to know the Five Signs of emotional suffering and change the culture surrounding mental health, mental illness, and wellness in Washington and Ozaukee Counties.
The Campaign Goal
The goal of the Campaign to Change Direction is to change the culture of mental health in America so that all those in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign encourages all Americans to pay attention to their emotional well-being -- and it reminds us that our emotional well-being is just as important as our physical well-being.
