Campaign to Change Direction

The Campaign to Change Direction was inspired by the discussion at the White House National Conference on Mental Health in 2013, which came on the heels of the Newtown tragedy. It asks people to learn the five signs of emotional suffering so you can recognize them in yourself or help a loved one who may be in emotional pain.

The five signs are:

  • withdrawal
  • agitation
  • hopelessness
  • decline in personal care
  • change in personality<
  • /ul>

    Someone may exhibit one or more signs.

    “Our mental health is just as vital as our physical health, so it’s time we start treating it that way.” – First Lady Michelle Obama
