Join John T. Broderick, Jr. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Senior Director of Public Affairs, Former Chief Justice of the NH Supreme Court for a discussion on Mental Health Awareness.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's R.E.A.C.T. Mental Health Awareness Campaign provides individuals throughout New Hampshire and Vermont with tips about hot to deal with signs of emotional suffering and with resources for support and help.
The R.E.A.C.T. campaign was developed to provide clear next steps to take when someone sees some, or all, of the 5 Signs of emotional suffering in another person. R.E.A.C.T. supplements the 5 Signs campaign developed by Barbara Van Dahlen of Change Direction. The idea for the 5 Signs was modeled on the theory that, like knowing the 5 Signs of a heart attack or stroke, we should all know the 5 Signs of emotional distress; and when we see those aigns we should take action.
Broderick believes that ""we have the ability to change the culture and the way mental health is viewed." He wants to spread this message to as many students, educators, parents, businesses and communities as he can.
