Text, Talk, Act uses text messaging to deliver content and information to our nation’s youth through their cell phones. Launching on May 7th, and continuing throughout the month of May, teens text APA to 89800 to engage in an activity around mental health.
Teens will learn about how to take care of their mental health, especially in light of challenges related to COVID-19, and how to reach out to their parents/guardians to start a conversation around mental health.
The text messages include polling questions, discussion questions, videos and social media interactions. The activity takes 45 minutes and culminates in building the skills needed to hold an effective conversation with their parents on the topic of mental health.
