It is encouraging to see schools involved in socially conscious activities where mental health is concerned because it opens possibilities for a more enlightened future. But there’s still so much more work to be done to achieve a stigma-free society. This is where sharing our personal stories and the information that is available through sources like Bring Change to Mind and Mental Health America comes into play.
This May, AE & Aerie are donating $50K to BC2M! We are deeply grateful for their support of our work to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. In addition to the donation, AE & Aerie are also offering customers an opportunity to support BC2M when checking out at your local Aerie and American Eagle stores and online at www.ae.com and www.aerie.com. We hope that you will shop to support BC2M! This funding allows us to strengthen and expand the network of mental health clubs that we have built on high school campuses across the country.
