Clubhouse International Teams Up with Nearly 200 Businesses and Non-Profits for Inaugural Mental Health Action Day
New York, NY, April 14, 2021 --( Clubhouse International in partnership with 193 leading brands, nonprofits and cultural leaders today announced the first-ever Mental Health Action Day, to be held on Thursday, May 20 during Mental Health Awareness Month.

Over the past two decades, suicide rates have risen, particularly among young adults, and challenges of isolation and anxiety faced by people living with mental illness continue to create obstacles to living healthy, fulfilling lives; the COVID pandemic has accelerated the already dire crisis, giving way to what many mental health professionals have called the “second pandemic.”

Though more people than ever are comfortable discussing mental health, finding effective resources and knowing how to get help remains a challenge. Mental Health Action Day is an open-source movement of brands, organizations and cultural leaders to drive mental health awareness to mental health action.

Partners will encourage people to take action towards better mental health care -- whether for themselves, for their loved ones or to advocate for systemic changes. Resources and tools will be available for people to seek help in a myriad of ways from finding a Clubhouse, learning how to support a friend, or advocating for change.
