Know the Five Signs! The CHANGEDIRECTION movement.

Child and Family Services Is proud to support the goals of the CHANGEDIRECTION movement. The goal of the Campaign to Change Direction is to change the culture of mental health in America so that all of those in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign encourages all Americans to pay attention to their emotional well-being – and it reminds us that our emotional well-being is just as important as our physical well-being. It is up to all of us to keep an eye on eachother and pay attention to the Five Signs that may indicate that someone we know is in emotional distress.

Here are Five Signs that may mean someone is in emotional pain and might need help:

If you recognize that someone in your life is suffering, now what?

You connect, you reach out, you inspire hope, and you offer help. Show compassion and caring and a willingness to find a solution when the person may not have the will or drive to help him- or herself. There are many resources in our communities. It may take more than one offer, and you may need to reach out to others who share your concern about the person who is suffering.  If everyone is more open and honest about mental health, we can prevent pain and suffering, and those in need will get the help they deserve.
