Received the following request to join an initiative, this being based upon my Website and work.
I feel honoured to be asked, and I have confirmed I will participate, as it will help more people.
Northwestern University’s #BreakTheStigma campaign has launched!
Message Dear Lilly: I’m on the marketing team for Northwestern University and I wanted to reach out to you directly about the launch of our #BreakTheStigma Campaign for May’s Mental Health Month!
We would love to get your participation in our efforts. You are an example of someone who is breaking down stigmas surrounding mental illness. Counseling@Northwestern is honored to celebrate leaders like you who work every day to stomp out negative attitudes and stereotypical beliefs about those who have mental health conditions.
We recently posted an announcement on our blog for #BreakTheStigma that details how we plan to spread awareness about this initiative. http://counseling.northwestern.edu/announcing-the-breakthestigma-campaign/ Since you are a voice with an audience in the mental space, would you do us the honor of partnering with us to promote our campaign on your website? I can send you an intro/description of our Call-To-Action along with our mental health month logo to illustrate for a quick and easy blog post.
We also invite you to participate in a Tweet Chat on Tuesday, May 12th at 5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm EST. Please join us to discuss the ways that stigmas prevent individuals from seeking help and get expert recommendations on how you as an individual can help to break them. It’s just 5 days away so encourage your followers to join the conversation as well! To RSVP: twvt.us/ve9l Please feel free to reach out to me with additional questions or for additional ways you can get involved!
