Say Something

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.


The more we talk about our mental health stories, the more we can reduce stigma. Share your stories of mental and emotional health and Post It Forward — don’t forget to tag #pleaselikeme!

Take Action

Nearly 60% of adults with a mental illness didn’t receive mental health services in the previous year. Tell Congress it’s time to improve access to mental health services.

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.
