Make a Difference on World Mental Health Day

Oct 10, 2023

Today, we recognize World Mental Health Day, a day dedicated to promoting mental health awareness, offering support and encouraging conversations about mental well-being.

Given the unique mental health crisis among our youth, we ask that you stand with us this World Mental Health Day to amplify the NAMI Teen & Young (T&YA) Adult HelpLine, a free nationwide peer-support service providing information, resource referrals and support to teens and young adults.

You can help make a significant difference in the lives of teenagers and young adults by spreading the word: Mental health support is readily available through the NAMI T&YA HelpLine.

How Can You Make a Difference Today?

Continuing NAMI’s Mental Illness Awareness Week theme — “Together We Care. Together We Share,” the simplest and most powerful way to make a difference today is by sharing this vital resource with your family, community and network.

We’ve prepared plenty of helpful messages for you to share with friends, family, colleagues and partner organizations. Please visit our social media toolkit to access sample posts, graphics and more to share across your social media channels.
