At the 8th Annual Revels and Revelations gala, Bring Change to Mind (BC2M) will celebrate a decade of working to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness. Guru proudly continued our ongoing partnership with BC2M in the development of their 10 Year Anniversary’s Campaign, Amplify Change.

This campaign highlights BC2M’s powerful progress towards amplifying voices of the 1 in 5 Americans living with a mental illness. In a time when COVID-19 has magnified the mental health crisis, the Amplify Change video celebrates ten years of transformation that has impacted the lives of thousands of high schoolers across the nation. It showcases an incredible response to Founder Glenn Close’s prompt: “I challenge every American family to no longer whisper about mental illness behind closed doors.”


The virtual Revels and Revelations gathering on October 1 will be a night of inspiration and entertainment, with a star-studded guest list including host Conan O’Brien with Wayne Brady, Abby Wambach, Cyndi Lauper, Kevin Love, John Mayer, Brittany Snow, Chase Stokes and more. BC2M will also honor the Smith Family: Will, Jada, Trey, Jayden, and Willow with the Robin Williams Legacy of Laughter Award.

Bring Change to Mind was co-founded in 2010 by actor and activist Glenn Close. Since inception, the organization has successfully leveraged the power of celebrity and media to launch a national dialogue about mental health. Additionally, BC2M has created a social movement around change by providing people with platforms to share, connect, and learn. This has allowed the organization to emerge as a leading national voice in the work to close the understanding gap and to normalize conversations around mental illness. To date, through Public Service Announcements (PSAs), an evidence-based peer-to-peer high school program, and undergraduate research focused on stigma reduction, BC2M has reached more than six billion people through messaging and advocacy efforts and serves more  than 10,000 students across the country.
