Support NICD’s Crowdfunding Campaign for Text, Talk, Act

Earlier this morning, one of our great NCDD organizational members, the National Institute for Civil Discourse, launched an online crowdfunding campaign to support the important work of Text, Talk, Act (TTA) – an amazing youth dialogue program that gets young people talking and taking action around the difficult issue of mental health – and we want to encourage our members to support the effort!

TTA is one of the most successful programs to have come out of the Creating Community Solutions (CCS) initiative that the White House launched in 2013 as a vehicle for national conversation on mental health, and as one of the steering organizations for CCS, NCDD has been a supporter since the beginning. We’ve seen the impact that TTA can have in teens’ lives, so we want to join with NICD to urge you to consider making a tax-deductible donation in support of this important work by clicking here.

Text, Talk, Act dialogues can literally save lives, so please consider making a donation today! You can also help spread the word by sharing the link to the campaign on social media: https://crowdfund.arizona.edu/TTAhero.

All of the funds raised in the crowdfunding campaign will go directly to support TTA programming by providing text messaging technology, materials for youth organizers, outreach coordination, and more. The more that you can help us raise in this crowdfunding effort, the more young people that will be engaged in these important conversations about taking care of and finding support for their mental health.

For more info, you can watch NICD’s promotional video on the project below:

Thanks in advance for supporting this great work!

We encourage you to learn more about TTA and how you can host a youth dialogue on mental health in your community by visiting www.creatingcommunitysolutions.org/texttalkact.
