In 2021, MTV Entertainment Group and Partners launched the first Mental Health Action Day to shift the culture of mental health. With 1,800+ partners and millions of individual participants from across 32 countries, this year the focus is on deepening impact.
This year’s Mental Health Action Day is on Thursday, May 18th and the theme, planned in partnership with TaskForce, is ACTION. What if everyone dedicated one hour to take action for their mental health?
As a Mental Health Ambassador, and this year a Partner with MTV and Taskforce, Ali’s goal is to help empower people around the globe to take action for mental health, whether for themselves, their loved ones, or to advocate for systemic changes in their community.
As part of her participation in Mental Health Action Day, Ali has created content with stand-outs in the entertainment and media field, such as Frank Black (lead singer of the Pixies), Wil Wheaton (author and actor from Star Trek), Craig Finn (lead singer of The Hold Steady), Rachel Bloom (actress, writer of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Reboot), Michael Ian Black, (comedian and author), Mike Doughty (musician, author of The Book of Drugs), Carly Chaikin, (Artis, actress from Mr. Robot), Kat Corbett (Sirius XM radio host), Brent Morin (comedian, writer, actor of Undateable, Conan), and many more.
The videos will be updated every day. Check some of them out here now:
In addition, on Thursday Ali is holding a roundtable discussion with Mental Health and Wellness advocate and NAMI ambassador Britt Turpack, Mental Health Activist and co-author with Lady Gaga, Juan Acosta, and artist and actress from this hit show Mr. Robot, Carly Chaikin.
