THE MENTAL
HEALTH
C~ALITION

Working together to end the devastating stigma surrounding today’s most prevalent public health crisis.

We have all felt like a
square peg in a round hole.

The common feeling that we don’t fit in, like we don’t belong, or when we just feel different to everyone else. It’s a feeling that manifests itself in varying degrees of severity, affecting hundreds of millions of people globally.

In fact, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lives. That means 4 in 4 people are significantly impacted directly, or indirectly through someone they know. When we all accept each other’s differences, everyone fits.

THE CASE FOR mental health

RES~URCES

These unprecedented times call for solidarity and unification.

Now, more than ever, The Mental Health Coalition believes we must increase the conversation around mental health. We must act to end silence, reduce stigma, and engage our community to inspire hope at this essential moment.

Black Lives Matter. Black Mental Health Matters. We stand in solidarity with the Black community. As allies, we are present and listening. We see and acknowledge your pain, fear, anger, and anxiety.

Please see below for specific mental health support and resources for Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) & LGBTQ communities, as well as resources specific to challenges we’re experiencing in midst of the COVID-19 pandemic:
