ABOUT RETHINK MENTAL HEALTH INCORPORATED
Rethink Mental Health Incorporated is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization that promotes mental health advocacy, education, and creative expression in an effort to eliminate the stigmatization of mental health, especially among children and young adults. Through our many initiatives, we strive to improve the way society views and treats mental health. As a result, more individuals can speak openly about what they are experiencing and seek professional help without fear of judgement, discrimination or harassment.
Rethink Mental Health Incorporated has a big mission and equally big initiatives to improve the advocacy and education of mental health issues and foster more empathetic and emotionally resilience future generations, but we cannot do it alone… We need your help to keep our mission active!
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year, and yet nearly 40% of them don't seek treatment or help from others. Research shows that people with mental illness have fewer opportunities related to work, independent living, and primary health care because of public stigma. The negative stigma on mental health is a serious issue in today's society. In public stigma, the population endorses stereotypes of mental illness leading them to discriminate against people with the label.
RETHINK MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATES
We often see mental health movements that promote awareness, but at Rethink Mental Health Incorporated we believe the time for awareness has long passed. Now is the time for advocacy, education, and most of all empowerment so no one has to feel alone or isolated in their struggles with mental health. By building this network of Mental Health Advocates, our organization hopes to continue spreading this message through the powerful voices of influencers!
