It’s time to Rethink How We Think About Mental Health…we all recognize this.
Mental health has come out of the closet as a mainstream conversation especially since the 2020 Covid-19 shared experience of isolation, anxiety, loss, uncertainty and continuous change in many aspects at home, at work and in our community engagement. Given the extent of stress, challenge, shock and at times trauma that we faced recently and perhaps continue to face we need to keep things SIMPLE…especially when it comes to addressing mental health.

Mental health In Just a MAIL Moment™
with Postcards That Start Dialogue™
PTSD HELP is here!
“Today, yesterday, last month, and the previous year has been challenging. It has been isolating. It is uncomfortable for us to talk and reach out for help. Until now. I was so happy to get this post card in the mail. It encouraged me to keep going. Breath through this. Know that someone somewhere cares.” Meaghan O’Leary. Helping companies increase safety by preventing violence in the workplace. Dirigo Safety, LLC.
We all have experienced some form of post traumatic stress in our lives at some point & statistics show Pandemic-fueled trauma is rising. PTSD is no longer reserved for our military soldiers. We also know that PTSD is a significant concern for our first responders & now the conversation is opening on PTSD in our work environment. It’s uncomfortable for most of us to get the conversation started in a meaningful way so the healing can proceed. Postcards That Start Dialogue™ ease the conversation in a simple way.
Simple words that are visual on a card shared in the mail, at the dinner table, in a lunch box, on a zoom meeting can open the heart & soul so the mind feels safe & will cooperate into a meaningful conversation.

What do we offer?
We start simple by adding our Postcards From Home™ campaign. Research documents that by mailing Caring Cards within an integrated mental health service mental health increases & suicides are reduced.
WE use the power of the MAIL Moment!
What if Postcards From Home™ were found in student mailboxes on & off campus during exam time? What if the college student center provided FREE cards & stamps for students to mail home to their friends & family? What if we provided student activity groups supplies of cards to engage in their own community outreach program supporting first responders in their communities? How might that make an impact on mental health for everyone?
