THE MENTAL
HEALTH
C~ALITION

Working together to end the devastating stigma surrounding today’s most prevalent public health crisis.

We have all felt like a
square peg in a round hole.

The common feeling that we don’t fit in, like we don’t belong, or when we just feel different to everyone else. It’s a feeling that manifests itself in varying degrees of severity, affecting hundreds of millions of people globally.

In fact, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lives. That means 4 in 4 people are significantly impacted directly, or indirectly through someone they know. When we all accept each other’s differences, everyone fits.
