In honor of Mental Health Month, Tumblr is supporting NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, because we believe that everyone is entitled to mental health care and support.
NAMI is the largest grassroots mental health organization in the US. On behalf of the millions of people who are affected by mental illness every day, NAMI is dedicated to increasing awareness and resources for mental health conditions, combating the social stigma that surrounds mental illness, and advocating for better and equal health care for anyone seeking mental health treatment.
If you have the means, we’re asking our community to donate between $1 to $5 to support NAMI and help build a national network of accessible mental health support and resources for all. By donating, you’re also showing that you wish to fight the stigma that surrounds mental illness and demonstrating your support for all who are affected.
While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime, we’re all likely impacted by mental illness–by friends, family members, or people in our community. Together, we can encourage acceptance, understanding, and support for mental health, and ensure that no one is alone on their mental health journey.
