Bring Change to Mind (BC2M) is a national organization working to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. BC2M’s evidence-based, high school club initiative operates across 30 states, over 400 high schools, with more than 10,000 students involved. BC2M High School Clubs are an outlet for students to generate meaningful mental health conversations, to create a network of peer support within their school communities, to build resilience, and to gain knowledge and new perspectives around mental illness.
We are currently active at Wallenberg & Lincoln, and are adding the following schools for the 2022-23 school year: Mission, June Jordan, Washington, Lowell, School of the Arts, Galileo, Balboa, Burton, and Independence.
