"Mental health is not a military issue, a guard issue, a veteran issue; it’s a human issue. Every single year, 1 in 5 Americans face a diagnosable mental health condition. These are our friends, our siblings, our children—they are us. We know that facing these issues, people may feel isolated and alone. They may withdraw because they feel that if they ask for help they will be seen as weak—somehow less than. So, it’s our job to make sure that we begin to treat mental health in the same way we treat physical health." —Dr. Biden. Tune in to Urban View on @SiriusXM tomorrow at 6pm ET to hear a special segment on changing the culture of mental health. #ChangeMentalHealth

"The National Guard gets it. Their most valuable resource is their people, and the families that stand behind them. Taking care of these individuals, and empowering them to take care of their own is essential to promoting health and well-being amongst the force. With this MOU, we will reach countless guard members across this country with the 5 Signs. We will be able to offer expanded mental health services to our Guard members and families through a network of more than 7000 Give an Hour providers. This is especially important for Guard families who don't always live on base or near military communities." -Dr. Biden at a special ceremony in the Pentagon Hall of Heroes marking the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the @US.NationalGuard and @GiveAnHour in support of the emotional well-being of Guard members and their families. #ChangeMentalHealth

"While our administration has strived to make community colleges more affordable and more attractive for more students to attend college, there's still so much more we can and must do. Because, at the end of the day it's all about the outcomes. It's about completion for purpose. It's about getting our students on the right pathway with links to a good paying job so they can provide for themselves and their families." -Dr. Biden at the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia University. #CCRC20

"As we celebrate the International Day of the Girl on Oct. 11, I think about all the girls and women who have inspired me over these past eight years. Every day, women and girls are finding incredible confidence and taking risks. When they change one mind, pretty soon, they have changed one tradition. That changed tradition has changed a village. That one village has changed a country. That new reality means new opportunities for themselves and their daughters. But it always starts with one girl, like Memory Banda." —Dr. Biden.

"Many of you are here because you know someone - a friend, a colleague, or a family member - who has been afflicted by this disease. We are here to tell you that you don't have to be a doctor, a nurse, or a researcher to make a difference. All of us have something to contribute. And, that's what it's going to take - that's how we're going to win this fight. All of us, working together. Because, only together can we seize this moment to defeat cancer." -Dr. Biden at @RiceUniversity@BakerInstitute#CancerMoonshot#BakerBiden
