Today is Mental Health Action Day 2023! The theme this year, planned in partnership with MTV and TaskForce, is ACTION. What if everyone dedicated one hour to take action for their mental health?
As an MTV Mental Health Talent Ambassador, and a 2023 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.
In honor of Mental Health Action Day, Ali has created content with stand-outs in the entertainment, music, wellness, advocacy, and media field.
Today, Ali had a roundtable discussion with three ambassadors from NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Health):
Mental Health and Wellness advocate Britt Turpack,
Mental Health Activist and co-author with Lady Gaga, Juan Acosta,
and artist and actress from the hit show Mr. Robot, Carly Chaikin.

Ali has more interviews coming – including with comedian/actor Brent Morin.
