Andrews & Associates Counseling and More Than 1,300 Partners Advocate First Mental Health Action Day

MANHATTAN, Kan. - May 20, 2021 - PRLog -- Today, Andrews & Associates Counseling and more than 1,300 organizations, brands, government agencies and cultural leaders will participate in the inaugural Mental Health Action Day to drive the conversation from mental health awareness to mental health action. Convened by MTV Entertainment Group, Mental Health Action Day is an open-source movement, aimed at motivating people to take action to get mental health support and by advocating for systemic changes for mental health access and equity.

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a disproportionate toll on the mental health and well-being of people of color, young people and LGBTQ+ communities. In response, coalition partners will host a series of activations ranging from public events featuring experts and activists to employee engagement activities, all with the goal of encouraging and empowering people to take an initial action, whether for themselves or others, to support their mental health needs.

"A year into the pandemic, as mental health struggles have skyrocketed, we brought together more than 1,300 partners to not only meet the moment but also drive a movement of action on a public health crisis that affects every one of us," said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV Entertainment Group. "From storytelling to creating content, together we can shatter stigma and normalize the act of getting help for those who need it."

"At Andrews & Associates Counseling, we understand that relationships of all kinds are vitally important. The relationships and environments we encounter in our day-to-day lives can impact our emotional and mental wellbeing significantly," said Dr. Stephanie Wick, Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist, Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor, and Owner/President of Andrews & Associates Counseling. "By participating as a partner on this first Mental Health Action Day, we endeavor to support a sense of community – locally here in the Flint Hills region of Kansas, nationally, and globally – by raising awareness, encouraging self-care, and providing tools and resources to build resilience on individual, familial, and community levels."
