My Red Said
Talking about Mental Health Matters
Let's discuss our emotions, name our fears and our feelings, and connect as a community.
Red Out Week
September 13-17, 2021
Help spread the word about the importance of mental.
Click on the red image to the left to save it, then share it on your social media, and write a message of hope, inspiration, or your personal struggle.
Let's get the conversation started. Talking about our mental health strengthens it, and let's others know they are not alone in whatever challenges they are facing.
Write a Message, Show Support
My Red Said is a public awareness campaign designed to encourage conversations about mental health.
With generous financial support by the Northbrook Civic Foundation, CATCH is placing My Red Said stations at a number of businesses in the downtown area along with the Northbrook Public Library throughout the month of September.
Everyone is invited to stop by and write a note of hope, encouragement, or personal struggle on a heart that will hang on red ribbons at each location.
We hope the display of hearts will give people a starting point to talk about mental health by asking one another: What does your red say?
In addition, CATCH is providing a list of local mental health providers currently taking new clients.
