Change Your Hue Of Blue

The Change Your Hue of Blue Movement

At UMCH Family Services, we are on a mission to change the cultural attitude toward mental illness and to do so we have created the Change Your Hue of Blue Movement. Our ultimate goal is to create in our own backyard a reality where we go from a lack of awareness about mental illness to widespread open dialogue; from families being weakened by underlying mental illness, to understanding there’s effective mental health management.

Changing the current reality matters to us at UMCH Family Services because we deal with many families and children around Ohio who experience mental health issues. Families and children we work with to successfully treat. Who now have a better chance at a stronger, more secure familial structure and a brighter future, where the color blue no longer represents sadness but serenity and peace. We know firsthand how urgent and important this issue is. Through Change Your Hue of Blue, we are raising funds and funding awareness, help and hope.

On May 2nd, 2015 we hosted our first Change Your Hue of Blue Event, a Blues Music Benefit Concert with much success. This event would not have been possible without the support of our community and we appreciate each and every person who was involved.

Change Your Hue of Blue was made possible in part through the generosity of our sponsors. We would like to thank the following companies and organizations for their kind support:
