CDC staff will describe their “Bring the Brave” campaign, a digital and social media campaign aimed at 18 to 44-year-old women and their challenges of reaching Ashkenazi Jewish women. The CEO of Cactus will discuss how the mental health campaign “Man Therapy” helped educate males about the early physical and mental signs of stress and how to work with this “hard-to-reach” population.
