Green Light Campaign

It is time to shine a light for mental health awareness.

You can help shine the light on mental health by one simple gesture of changing your lights to green and/or wearing a green ribbon, or following us on Insta @cb_state_of_mind.

Pick up a light bulb, green ribbon, and more at these locations.

CB State of Mind is launching its 2nd annual Mental Health Awareness Campaign in collaboration with YOU our community Sunday, March 27th to Sunday, April 30th leading into the spring off-season.

It is time to shine a light for mental health awareness. We are asking our friends and neighbors to join us in this effort by placing a green light in your windows for this entire MONTH to help raise awareness about mental health!

The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness about mental health, but more importantly, to spark conversations and fight the stigma surrounding mental health.

 You can help shine the light on mental health by one simple gesture of changing your lights green!

MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

You're invited to participate in a community conversation about mental health. This is your opportunity to provide input on: • The state of mental health and substance abuse in our community. • What can be done to effectively reduce the stigma of mental health. • What steps should be taken to unveil a stigma reduction campaign.

Join us tonight at the Daily Dose for an open mic night from 6-9. We are passionately creating spaces for positive connections that are sober, free and open to all! @thriveyoga.crestedbutte @dailydosecb

Join us at the reopened Majestic Theatre for a screening with GRASP on September 29th at 6:30pm!!

Thank you to those who have supported Crested Butte State of Mind’s efforts to provide the community access to mental health care. From your help we have been able to provide 2,000 individual therapy sessions to members in our community!

In a society that praises productivity and tells us to sleep when we are dead, it’s time to change that narrative. We deserve rest. Even if you got a full nights sleep, if you are tired, rest. Our bodies are telling us to slow down, and if we don’t listen our mental and physical health will deteriorate. Listen to your body and rest. #restisimportant #mentalhealthmatters

Sometimes it’s as simple as a text, other times grabbing coffee and chatting will do the trick. Whatever it is, make sure the people in your life are doing alright. Often the people that smile the most are in the most pain. #mentalhealthmatters #makesureyourfriendsareokay #cbstateofmind

Everyone has different preferences! Do you prefer therapy or meditation for your mental health? Answer in the comments! We got this! #mentalhealthmatters

Life is crazy and often we forget to breathe. Such a simple task but we take it for granted. Deep breaths have been found to decrease anxiety and depression and improve our brain function. So take a second and take a breath, life will go on. #peace #mentalhealthawareness

When life has got you down, try to remember that joy is contagious! Smile at a stranger, let out your laughter and we will all benefit! #mentalhealthawareness

Another successful green light campaign!!!! Thank you all for everything. All of us are important, each of our stories, each of our green lights shows the importance of community. We stand up for the people we love and the people we don’t know yet. We are unstoppable. #greenlightcampaign #mentalhealthmatters

All of you make this possible. And we are so thankful! Mental illness doesn’t need to be eradicated, it needs to be understood and people need to be supported. Your green lights help us show that mental health DOES matter and that we will not give up, we will keep shining bright until across the valley people are having conversations about mental health! #greenlightcampaign #thankyou #mentalhealthmatters

Therapy is a tool that can help us navigate life and provide us with a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

You don’t need to be in crisis to seek therapy. You don’t need to have a mental illness to seek therapy.

Everyone deserves support and we are working to share this message.

Please share if you believe that needing therapy doesn’t mean you’re crazy, and let’s view mental health support in a new light! A green light!

Mental health matters and we are here to change the dialogue! #greenlightcampaign #mentalhealthmatters #therapyiscool #mentalhealthsupport #everyonedeservessupport

In our community this time of year is especially difficult. We see our highest rates of suicide attempts, and non fatal overdoses, and many people reach out for support. The time between when the ski hill closes and the mountains are clear enough to bike and hike, is a time where mental health often hits its lowest low. We wanted to raise awareness and shine our lights in the darkness to provide hope to our neighbors. You are not alone, we are not alone, times are tough but we are resilient and we will make it through. So if you are having a tough time, reach out to someone in your life, apply for a therapy scholarship or speak your truth, and together we can get through this. #greenlightcampaign #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #smashthestigma

This time of year is hard for many of us. Green represents the battle for mental health. We are strong and together we can make a change. #greenlightcampaign #mentalhealthmatters
