CORTLAND, NEW YORK – Forest 2 Home in partnership with 193 leading brands, nonprofits and cultural leaders today announced the first ever Mental Health Action Day, to be held on Thursday 20 May during Mental Health Awareness Month.
Over the past two decades, suicide rates have increased and the COVID pandemic has accelerated the already severe crisis, giving way to what many mental health professionals have called the “second pandemic.” For veterans, the risk of suicide is above average. Now more than ever, we need to introduce ourselves and support those, especially the military and veteran community that Forest 2 Home serves on a daily basis.
While more people than ever are comfortable talking about mental health, finding effective resources and knowing how to get help remains a challenge. Mental Health Action Day is an open source movement of brands, organizations and cultural leaders to drive culture from mental health awareness to mental health action.
Partners will encourage people to take the first steps towards mental health action – whether for themselves, for their loved ones, or to support systemic change. Resources and tools will be available for people to seek help in a myriad of ways, from starting a meditation practice, learning to support a friend or supporting change.
