Our mission is to create a safe space in which people feel encouraged and empowered to share stories from their mental health journeys in hopes of fostering a greater sense of awareness and validation within the community.
We are starting a campaign designated to mental health in athletics.
The recent stories of famous athletes speaking up about their mental health have created a huge shift in the trend of mental health being accepted in sports—and we want to continue that shift…in Ellington!
Change the Game is what we are calling the campaign. The logo you see above will be associated with anything the Change the Game group does! We are building Change the Game into the mental health campaign EYS already has called Speak Free.
Some potential ideas for Change the Game: teaching teammates how to lead a mindfulness activity, bringing Ellington alumni in to talk to teams, t-shirts with positive sayings, even holding a community-wide event to host a “famous” speaker. None of this can happen without a committee of people.
