Change the conversation about mental illness.
If we’ve learned anything from Please Like Me, it’s that everything is awkward — but mental health shouldn’t be. Inspired by the series’ authentic take on mental illness, and continuing our mission to spark conversation and inspire change, we’ve teamed up with leading NGOs on Say Something: a campaign that empowers viewers to change the perception of mental health in their homes, on college campuses, and in their communities.
Transform Your Campus
Mental health issues can have a negative impact on academic and social success in college, but because of the shame surrounding these issues, many students suffer in silence.
Check out the toolkit (developed in collaboration with Active Minds) to learn how to access mental health care as a college student, find out how to support your peers, and to join the movement by becoming a mental health advocate on your campus.
Transform Your Campus
