“We are proud to come together with this diverse group of influential and purpose-driven partners who share our commitment to empowering and encouraging people to shift from mental health awareness to mental health action,” said Erika Soto Lamb, Vice President of Social Impact Strategy at MTV Entertainment Studios. “When we recognize that mental health is health, we have an opportunity to demystify, destigmatize and normalize taking actions to help ourselves and each other.”

This year’s call to action is to dedicate one hour to a mental health action for yourself, your loved ones, or your community. Participants are encouraged to take their first steps towards mental health action — whether for themselves, for their loved ones or to advocate for systemic changes through a wide range of tools. Free resources and tools, such as an employer toolkit and platforms for hosting and organizing events, are available for organizations and groups to help support their audiences through a myriad of ways – from starting a meditation practice to learning how to support a friend to advocating for change.

Cultural leaders including Arianna Huffington, Deepak Chopra and Gabriella Wright, and brands and organizations including Snapchat, YouTube, Reddit, NAACP and NAMI, are among those joining Mental Health Action Day 2023. A full list of partners is available at (
