Take steps in your workplace, home, and community to be an advocate for mental health. Start by being sensitive about your language, and developing a supportive culture.
We know that sharing stories is a helpful tool to reduce stigma and be an advocate for mental health. Consider sharing a story of yours, or reading about someone else's story about mental health.
