About Directing Change

Directing Change launched in 2012 and is a suicide prevention and mental health promotion program that draws on developmental and educational theory in its approach. By following the program’s submission guidelines to create short (30 and 60-second) films or art projects, students learn about suicide prevention, mental health, and other social justice and critical health topics; discuss and apply that knowledge in peer groups; and communicate positive, youth-focused, action-oriented messages to peers and adults in their communities. The Directing Change is part of statewide efforts to prevent suicide, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness, and promote the mental health and wellness of students. These initiatives are funded by the California County Mental Health Departments through the Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) and administered by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA).  Directing Change is free to schools and supported by the California Department of Education.
