Campaign to Change Direction

Women's Fund leads Central Indiana to change direction on mental health

Women’s Fund brings an important national public health campaign regarding mental health, the Campaign to Change Direction, to Indiana to help every adult learn the five signs of emotional suffering and what to do if they recognize any of these indicators of emotional pain in themselves or someone else.

Women's Fund has convened nine cities, and 46 college campuses, plus hospitals, health departments, chambers, foundations and businesses to take the lead on normalizing conversation around mental illness. This partnership represents a significant investment in the mental health and well-being of 1.9 million residents of Central Indiana.
