So many of us have come to realize that mental health and physical health come as a pair. We all have both. It’s backed by science. There’s no shame in realizing we all must take care of our brains. We say it loud and proud, and know it’s important for other people to understand it as well.

We’ve shared our stories. We’ve posted on social media. We’ve let the people we care about know they are not alone. It’s vital we keep that up. But now it’s time we do something more.

It’s time to demand

Studies show that one in five Americans will experience a mental health condition this year, and 50% will experience one in their lifetime.

But together, we can do something about it.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is galvanizing experts, advocates, other mental health organizations and supporters, and YOU to demand #MoreForMentalHealth.



You may not think of yourself as a mental health and suicide prevention advocate, but if you care about mental health, the time has come to move things forward, and champion policy changes needed to support our friends, family, community, and the rest of the country. Take the first step by sharing a demand for mental health with your community and raise your voice for mental health and suicide prevention.
