 98. Bring Change 2 Mind is a not-for-profit organization created by Glenn Close, the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation (CABF), Fountain House, and Garen and Shari Staglin of IMHRO (International Mental Health Research Organization).  

The idea of a national anti-stigma campaign was born of a partnership between Glenn Close and Fountain House, where Glenn volunteered in order to learn about mental illness, which both her sister and nephew suffer from.

BRINGCHANGE2MIND'S MISSION IS TWOFOLD:

  1. Provide people with misconceptions about mental illness quick and easy access to information that combats stigma.

  2. Provide people with mental illness, and those who know them, quick and easy access to information and support.

 100.  HELP for Difficult Financial Times:

        A.  Finding health care providers doesn't have to be a headache. You can use directories to search for doctors that accept Medicare or search by speciality, name or location.

        B. The government also collects data on healthcare facilities around the country. You can use this information to learn about and compare the quality of care in the facilities near you. You'll find information  

            about emergency department wait times, surgical outcomes, patient safety measures, health inspections, and staffing at your local facilities.

        C. If you don't have health insurance, you can find a public health clinic and pay what you can afford, based on your income. If you have a smart phone, you can use the Find A Health Center app to

            find a clinic near you. You can also explore insurance options available to you.

        D.  Find and compare health care facilities near you.

For more resources on helping your family cope with financial challenges, check out Help for Difficult Financial Times.
