R.E.A.C.T. Awareness Campaign

Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s R.E.A.C.T. Awareness Campaign provides students throughout New Hampshire with tips to deal with signs of emotional suffering, and resources for support and help. This effort is in response to the five signs of emotional suffering identified by Change Direction, a national organization dedicated to changing the culture surrounding mental illness.

Led by Senior Director of Public Affairs John Broderick and in collaboration with the New Hampshire Department of Education, Broderick along with NH Department of Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut and other NH government officials, have been reaching out to high school students, parents and professionals across New Hampshire to help change the conversation on mental health.

Broderick believes that students “have the ability to change the culture and the way mental health is viewed,” and wants to spread this message to as many students, parents and professionals as he can.

Watch this video from one of Broderick’s talks to students at Mascoma Valley Regional Highschool in Canaan, NH.
