YOUR WALLET

donate to the cause
Please Donate
  • Learn and share the facts about mental health and illness
  • Get to know people with personal experiences of mental illness
  • Speak up in protest when friends, family, colleagues or the media display false beliefs and negative stereotypes
  • Offer the same support to people when they are physically or mentally unwell
  • Don’t label or judge people with a mental illness, treat them with respect and dignity as you would anyone else
  • Don’t discriminate when it comes to participation, housing and employment
  • Talk openly of your own experience of mental illness. The more hidden mental illness remains, the more people continue to believe that it is shameful and needs to be concealed.
