Take Action: Spread the Word

I want to get involved. What can I do to help?

    Here is a list of ideas of things you could do:

  • Pledge to make a difference by helping to spread the word.
  • Share your story of how mental health affects you so that others know they are NOT ALONE. You can do this at a formal or informal level (an actual presentation to a group or just to a group of friends). You could also post it to NAMI’s You are Not Alone Campaign.
  • Encourage friends and family to learn more about mental health (tell them why this is important to you). Email or text them links to trusted sites such as www.nami.org.
  • Reach out to a friend or loved one who has been having a difficult time and discuss things that are bothering him/her.
  • Spread the word through your social media channels. Post comments, photos or videos that show your support for National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. Mention why you care and ask your contacts to share and help spread the word. Follow this link for sample messages you could use.
  • Like the National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month page on Facebook (fb.com/minoritymentalhealth) and join the conversation on Twitter (#minoritymentalhealth) to find out what others are doing and to join your voice.
  • Browse the NAMI website. Register (for free) and select the free email publications you would like to receive regularly.
