  12. 12. Emergency funding must be dedicated to clinicians and organizations treating individuals with mental health and substance use disorders. Pivotal Moves Decisive actions that could begin now and change the course of community life relatively quickly Prioritize Maintenance: Transportation funds should be focused on retrofitting and equipping existing communities to handle the long-term implications of this crisis and to create more jobs per dollar. Use School Time Better Move school calendars to flexible, year-round learning Account for Food’s True Cost: Accelerate the implementation of cost- benefit analysis, life-cycle assessment, and multicriteria analyses to capture the systemwide impact of food production. Outdoor classrooms can help with social distancing and, over the long term, studies show that exploring, playing, and learning in nature improves academic achievement.

  14. 14. ● Civic Life: Shift authority to local communities for direction and accountability, along with incentives to contribute through national service. ● Economic Life: Redefine progress and shared prosperity by embracing benchmarks that are more meaningful than stock prices or gross domestic product. ● Social, Emotional, Spiritual Life: Redistribute mental health knowledge and interventions to expand care and ease the strain on frontline clinicians. Long-term lines of work that require persistence and courage to renew legacies of well-being and justice
  15. 15. Braver Angels unites red and blue America to depolarize our politics and reawaken what it means to be American in our time; The Poor People’s Campaign rises with 140 million poor and struggling Americans to insist that no one is ignored, dismissed, or pushed to the margins; Active Minds lifts up the power of young people to speak openly about mental health, reduce stigma, and create hope out of tragedy. Color of Change and the Movement for Black Lives lift up the voices of Black, Brown, and all long-excluded people calling for justice. Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all. Erik Erikson Well-Being in the Nation (WIN) Network, enables stewards of all kinds to connect and cooperate as they expand the vital conditions we all need to thrive. Momentum for renewal is gathering force all around us. Witness, for example, just a few endeavors that are currently gaining traction: There will always be new voices to hear and new legacies to question, as well as more pivotal moves and trend benders to surface. America’s movement for well-being and justice can never be codified in a single playbook. Yet, it can spring forward with great force and direction if we pursue our priorities, together, to make change happen where it counts.
