Take the mental health pledge

Break the mental health stigma

30.3% of people have experienced a mental health disorder in their lifetime. Less than 30% of individuals are receiving treatment due to the stigma. By pledging you are saying it is okay to talk about mental health and empowering those affected to do the same.
