Bring Change to Mind

Actor and Advocate Glenn Close Co-Founded Bring Change to Mind in 2010 to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. The idea for the organization resulted from Ms. Close’s first-hand observation of the struggles with mental illness within her own family. BC2M works to normalize mental health conversations through Public Service Announcements andthrough an evidence-based program, BC2M High School.  These student-led high school clubs provide a space for educated conversation, changing perceptions, and demystifying a topic that affects so many young individuals. BC2M provides teens with a platform to share their thoughts around mental health and allows them the freedom and initiative to learn, educate, and raise awareness within their clubs and beyond.
