This May, for Mental Health Awareness Month, New Day Employment Network (NDEN) and more than 500 organizations are taking part in the first Mental Health Action Day on Thursday, May 20th, with a mission to encourage and empower people to take a mental health action.
Though more people than ever are comfortable discussing mental health, finding effective resources and knowing how to get help remains a challenge. Thursday, May 20th is a day for taking mental health action, whether for yourselves, your loved ones, or to advocate for systemic changes. The action looks different for everyone and Mental Health Action Day encourages people to do what feels right for them.
Please listen to our Mental Health Action Day Forum and choose to take a Mental Health Action.
Mental Health Action Day is being planned by the MTV Entertainment Group and TaskForce, a cultural organizing agency that builds capacity for those taking on the most pressing challenges facing our communities, nation, and world. Learn more at https://www.mentalhealthactionday.org/
