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

This moment has been a long time in the making. Our aims and activities were collectively decided in Johannesburg, South Africa in January of this year, where inspiring lived experience advocates, NGO reps, creatives and strategic partners from 14 countries came together.

We’re a diverse group from all income levels and regions, with participating countries ranging from the tiny island nation of Tonga to countries with huge populations like India and the US as well as countries like Liberia and Sierra Leone, which have overcome both civil war and Ebola epidemics in recent decades.

We’re strengthened as a campaign by our shared appreciation that we all have more to learn and each one of us has so much to teach.

We’re privileged to have a number of partners supporting our work globally and we’re delighted to have backing from influential individuals.
