TAKE A STAND FOR
A CAMPAIGN BY
IN COLLABORATION WITH
Join our virtual icebreaker this World Mental Health Day.
Up to 80% of Americans will have a mental health condition at some point in their lives, even if it’s temporary.
It’s more common than cancer, heart disease, or diabetes combined, but many people stay quiet, particularly in the workplace, because the stigma remains. This stigma stifles conversation and treatment-seeking behavior causing 8 in 10 employees do not seek treatment due to fear and shame. We want to break the silence, and we need your help.
Your social share can break the stigma, inspire conversations and donations, and catalyze change.
How to Participate
On World Mental Health Day (October 10, 2019) Mind Share Partners and participating brands will ask everyone to take a stand for mental health by breaking the silence.
Here’s how you can join the movement:

Today is World Mental Health Day, and I am taking a stand for mental health.
I've been successfully managing anxiety for quite a while now, but we almost never talk about mental health at work. Even though it can be hard sometimes, I'm a perfectly valid, proud, and successful professional.

#4. Support Mental Health in the Workplace
Mind Share Partners is a nonprofit in the U.S. focused exclusively on changing the culture of workplace mental health.
The Story Behind The Campaign
Mind Share Partners is a nonprofit changing the culture of workplace mental health so that both employees and organizations can thrive.
During an icebreaker activity at Mind Share Partners’ annual conference, the audience was asked to stand, raise their hand, or acknowledge in any way they could if their response to any given question was “yes.” The last question was this:
"Have you personally been affected by a mental health condition in the workplace?"
Almost the entire room stood up or raised their hand. We were humbled. It was powerful for everyone in the room to physically see the representation of mental health prevalence and break the stereotypes around who mental health affects. We wanted to bring this same experience to the internet to reach as many people as possible.
