Pledge to Speak Your Mind

We believe in a world where everyone, everywhere has someone to turn to when their mental health needs support.

Speak Your Mind is about giving mental health a voice for action. We're calling on leaders to provide quality mental health care for all.

It's time for them to invest, educate, and empower now, for the future we need.

For too long, mental health has been absent from where the conversations that shape people’s lives occur.

For too long, the reluctance to address global mental health has stopped so many people from realizing their dreams and achieving their full potential.

For too long, our governments have failed to hear the voices of people suffering needlessly because they are denied the support they need to manage their conditions – and thrive.

For too long, people with mental health conditions have been silenced.

No more.

People from 15 countries around the world have come together pledging to secure meaningful and urgent action from their governments, demanding they invest in our mental health.

Together, we pledge to hold health professionals, across all disciplines, accountable and responsible for ensuring their patients get the mental health care they need.

We call upon governments and societies to discuss mental health openly and plainly, to end the discrimination and stigma surrounding it.

We pledge to give the megaphone to those with first-hand experience of mental health need, rather than speak for them.

We pledge not to be quiet until our demands echo through the corridors of power and are reflected in how people live.

Together we will fight for a world where mental health is respected as an essential component of human health.

We will fight until leaders invest, educate, and empower our societies to end the silence around mental health and invest in ensuring we all have good mental health.
