In all honestly, I do not think that he Change Direction campaign will have a major impact on society. This may seem a bit obvious, but our faces do not look like those emojis. If those are the ‘signs’ we are looking for to identify, we will be looking for a very long time and with few results. A concept that is often over looked in society is that individuals with depression can in fact smile. There is no dark grey cloud following them around like in the Cymbalta commercials either. Mental Illnesses can be very difficult to notice; we saw this when simply trying to define what abnormal behavior is. Personally, I see a lot of weaknesses to this campaign. It could be nice to have a guide of what to look out for among friends, but honestly I think according to this campaign all Austin College students could be diagnosed with a mental illness during finals week. I think that this campaign would easily be turned into a joke on campus just because of how stressed students at Austin College are. With that said, I do think that Austin College needs some sort of community support system in place where people can learn about mental illness and how to talk to someone who is experiencing depression, anxiety, or another mental illness. I like the part of the campaign where support information is given, but those hotlines seem a bit impersonal. I think above all students just need resources on how to communicate effectively. We know our friends well enough to know if they need help and most of us do not trust the counseling services or any other authority.
