To end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
Glenn Close & Her Family
Bring Change to Mind is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging dialogue about mental health, and to raising awareness, understanding, and empathy.
Actress & activist Glenn Close co-founded Bring Change to Mind in 2010 after her sister, Jessie Close, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and her nephew, Calen Pick, with schizoaffective disorder.
Every individual who speaks out inspires another. And another. That’s how we’ll end the stigma around mental illness. That’s how we’ll Bring Change to Mind.
Good at reading between the lines?
When your friends need someone to listen, do they often turn to you? Are you able to understand how people feel, even if they don’t actually say it? If so, a career in mental health might be right for you. And you’re needed now more than ever.
Get Involved with BC2m
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, the #DanceYourSocksOffChallenge lets people showcase their fun and creative side while also raising money for Bring Change to Mind. Pair of Thieves will be donating $5 per video posted on TikTok or Instagram. Dance and movement are good for your mood, self-esteem, to reduce stress, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and it promotes emotional regulation from your toes up.
Revels & Revelations
Revels & Revelations is BC2M’s annual benefit, held each fall in either San Francisco or New York City. The star-studded event treats guests to an evening of comedy, music, and most importantly, the heartfelt and honest stories that will help us normalize the conversation around mental illness.
