Take Action and Say Something
Inspired by the series Please Like Me, and continuing our mission to spark conversation and inspire change, we've teamed with the National Alliance of Mental Illness on Say Something, a campaign that highlights the experiences of the 1 in 4 individuals living with mental illness to help de-stigmatize the issue, and encourage Congress to prioritize passing comprehensive mental health legislation.
