Shatterproof Encourages and Empowers People to Share #MHmetime Moments During the Month of May
To address a global mental health crisis in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and amid the continued struggle of systemic racism, Shatterproof and more than 900 organizations, brands, government agencies and cultural leaders have signed on to be part of the inaugural Mental Health Action Day on Thursday, May 20 during Mental Health Awareness Month. This open-source movement to shift culture from awareness to action on mental health has added more than 700 partners since its announcement one month ago.
Cultural and political leaders are among the new partners who are committed to encourage and empower their followers, fans, and constituents to take action on their mental health.
As one of more than 900 partners, Shatterproof will amplify the movement’s efforts by launching a complimentary mini campaign called #MHmetime. The hashtag is intended to create a safe, accessible digital space for anyone who wants to share the positive things that they do to take care of their mental health. Additionally, Shatterproof has recently refreshed our “Find Help” section on the website, https://www.shatterproof.org/find-help.
“Our goal is to get people talking and engaging on social media about mental health and what things they do to preserve and refresh their own mental health. We believe this is a simple, but impactful action people can take, and we encourage people to share the hashtag #MHmetime this month on their social channels,” said Kirsten Seckler, Chief Marketing Officer, Shatterproof.
A full list of partners is available here.
Mental Health Action Day is being planned with the support of TaskForce, a cultural organizing agency that builds capacity for those taking on the most pressing challenges facing our communities, our nation and our world.
