CONCORD — NHTI – Concord’s Community College invites the public to a special presentation by John Broderick, Senior Director of Public Affairs at Dartmouth Hitchcock and former NH Chief Justice, on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, from 12:30 – 1:45 pm in Sweeney Auditorium. Mr. Broderick appears as part of Dartmouth Hitchcock’s R.E.A.C.T. mental health awareness campaign, which provides individuals with tips on how to recognize signs of emotional suffering and how to seek support for themselves and others. Drawing on his personal experiences, Mr. Broderick has shared his message with more than 250 schools and community events in New Hampshire and Vermont in an effort to destigmatize mental illness.
R.E.A.C.T supplements the “Five Signs” campaign developed by Change Direction, which is based on the premise that, like knowing the Five Signs of a heart attack or stroke, we should all know the Five Signs of emotional distress; R.E.A.C.T. helps us take action.
The R.E.A.C.T. campaign is presented by Dartmouth-Hitchcock in collaboration with the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD), the New Hampshire Department of Education, the Vermont Agency of Education, and other agencies and civic leaders.
