Be a part of Time to Talk Week, May 21st-27th, 2022, as people from across the Greater Omaha- Council Bluffs metro area commit to having conversations about mental health in their every day lives – at their school, workplace, neighborhood park, or around the dinner table. Share your story and encourage others to engage in conversations about our mental health.
More than 85 organizations and 50 individuals, in collaboration with The Wellbeing Partners and the WhatMakesUs campaign, are pledging to talk about mental health during Time to Talk Week. This kind of storytelling, open conversation, and encouragement can help us see each other with more understanding and promote mental wellbeing.
-Pledge to have these conversations during the week of May 21st-27th 2022, and beyond, using the toolkit below
– Submit a story to our regional campaign, WhatMakesUs, about why mental health is important to you. WhatMakesUs aims to reduce stigma by gathering and sharing testimonials of people living with mental health conditions as well as their allies. See others’ stories here.
