State Campaign Resources

The statewide Take Action for Mental Health campaign 2023 theme is “Share, or #Share4MH” As in, we are encouraging others to share how you take care of your own well-being, and how you get support. Share how you’re feeling today. Share music or songs that uplift you. Share how you overcame stigmas in your family or community in getting mental health support. In May (and every other month!) we’re encouraging counties, organizations, and so many others to come together and share how they support their mental well-being on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by using the hashtag #Share4MH.
