We Want to Hear From You: Take The Mighty's Mental Health Month Survey

May is Mental Health Month, and we need your help leading the conversation.

Every year, we talk about stigma.

Every year, we say the mental health system is broken.

But what specifically are we fighting for this year? What do people living with mental illnesses really need?

That’s where you come in.

We’ve created a series of surveys to help us understand what the mental health community is fighting for this year. The surveys are split into four categories: Mental Health Treatment, Hospitalization, Stigma and Support, and Suicide Prevention.

If you’re interested, you can find links to the surveys below.

  1. Let’s #GetSpecific About Mental Health Treatment
  2. Let’s #GetSpecific About Hospitalization
  3. Let’s #GetSpecific About Support and Stigma
  4. Let’s #GetSpecific About Suicide Prevention

Thank you so much for sharing your voices with us. We’re excited to show you what we find – and will use your answers to lead the conversation in May.
