John Broderick on Mental Health

John Broderick, Senior Director of
External Affairs, R.E.A.C.T. Mental Health Awareness Campaign, Dartmouth Hitchcock

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library for a presentation by the Honorable John T. Broderick, Jr. of Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s R.E.A.C.T Mental Health Awareness Campaign on Wednesday evening, February 5 th at 7 pm.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s R.E.A.C.T. Mental Health Awareness Campaign provides individuals throughout New Hampshire and Vermont with tips about how to deal with signs of emotional suffering and with resources for support and help.

The R.E.A.C.T. campaign was developed to provide clear next steps to take when someone sees some, or all, of the 5 signs of emotional suffering in another person. The 5 signs campaign was modeled on the theory that, like knowing the 5 sign of a heart attack or stroke, we should all know the 5 signs of emotional distress; and when we see those signs, we should take action.

John Broderick is the Senior Director of External Affairs for Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and formerly the Chief Justice of the NH Supreme Court. He has been reaching out to New Hampshire and Vermont communities to change the conversation on mental health. Through his efforts, over 50,000 high school and middle school students, teachers, school administrators and community members have learned about how R.E.A.C.T. encourages people to take action if they or someone they know are in emotional pain.

This program is free and open to the public, although a $5.00 donation is welcome to offset presentation expenses. For more information, please contact the Jackson Public Library at 603-383-9731.
