Our Mission

To end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.

Glenn Close understands that mental health is something that affects all families. Yet, few talk about it. It was not until her sister, Jessie, received a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, and her nephew, Calen, was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder that the Close Family took action. In 2009, her family asked Close to use her platform to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. In 2010, she co-founded Bring Change 2 Mind (BC2M), a nonprofit organization built to start the conversation about mental health, and to raise awareness, understanding, and empathy. BC2M develops influential public service announcements (PSAs) including its most recent campaign, #StrongerThanStigma, has piloted evidence-based programs at the university and high school levels engaging students to reduce stigma and discrimination, and has created a social movement around change by providing people with platforms to share, connect, and learn.
