We Need to Talk- Campus initiative
CSUSM Spring 2019
When was the last time you had a conversation with the key people in your life about what is important to you?
- Do they know What Gives Your Life Meaning?
- Would they be able to make decisions for you in a medical emergency if you couldn’t speak for yourself?
- 89.2% of college students- and 74% of American adults—haven’t documented their health care choices in an Advance Directive and communicated these decisions to those they love.
- An Advance Directive(1) names a person who should speak for you if you can’t speak for yourself and (2) outlines what you would/would not done for you if you were seriously ill or injured.
- Documenting choices makes it more likely that those you love will be better prepared to make decisions for you in case of an emergency – and you for them.
- Would your loved one know what is important to you, and be able to honor your wishes?
- Would you be able to do them same for them?
- Share this information to prevent all of you from experiencing the heartache and guilt that comes with making decisions without knowing what is truly important to those we love.
We need to talk. Take out the guess-work.
You and your loved ones matter enough to have a conversation.
Want to get started? Take the Pledge to start the conversation.
Everyone who takes the pledge will be entered in a drawing for one of ten $10 Starbucks gift cards; you will also be able to indicate whether you are willing to answer a 3-question (1 minute) survey at the completion of the WGYLM campaign.
